Hammond's Flycatcher commented on by JeffCrocombe Pocatello, Idaho, USA5 years ago

Empidonax Flycatcher. Empidionax sp. Difficult group to ID - might not be possible due to quality of photos.

Looks identical to Taenaris dimona thaema in Parson's Butterflies of New Guinea. Distribution would be wrong for this subspecies however & I don't know which subspecies occur in your area. (Supposedly there are 13 ssp.) I would put money on it being this species though.

Gorgeous! Open wing shots are always difficult!

If you are on facebook, you can ask for help from the https://www.facebook.com/groups/AfricanL... group. It would be great if you can submit all your african moths to: LepiMAP at http://vmus.adu.org.za/ A guide to the submision process can be found at: http://www.slideshare.net/meganloftieeat...

It would be great if you could submit this and any other moth and butterfly records from southern africa to the LepiMAP Virtual Museum at http://vmus.adu.org.za/. For unidentified specimens you will get an ID (in most cases) by experts and you will contribute important data to science.

Leopard Tortoise commented on by JeffCrocombe Mookgopong Local Municipality, Limpopo, South Africa7 years ago

Most definitely NOT a Parrot-beaked Padloper. This tortoise is much too large and has a domed shell. Furthermore the Parrot-beaked Padloper is endemic to the Western Cape Province and is never found anywhere near Limpopo. This is a Leopard Tortoise Stigmochelys pardalis. See my Parrot-beaked Padloper spotting at: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/248...
