Extensive tours were undertaken of the artificial Southern African zone, south of the Zambesi Cunene line. The object was to add to our knowledge of many lesser known species of butterflies that inhabit the more remote areas. It seems desirable that some of the more important finds should be recorded. Hereby unpublished records were combined with the findings and arranged them in the order adopted by most modern writers on this branch of Lepidoptera.
