butterflies in the Lycaenidae family mating
mimbo woodland, 1000m
I spotted these butterflies in Namizimu forest reserve.
Thanks for the ID Võ Anh Tuấn!
Thanks Ashley and Daniele. I've just left it at the genus level for now.
I agree with Ashley. Butterflies in the genus Anthene all have three short tails on the hindwing. This list gives 13 species for Malawi but I do no know if it's complete. More work needed :-)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_but...
Genus Anthene I think, lots of species though!
