The early stages of none of the thirty odd species of the genus Phasis (Lycaenidae) occuring in South Africa were known until quite recently. The food-plants being altogether unrecorded, it was difficult to trace any individual species. The majority occur at the Cape; a few others are scattered over the arid regions of the Karroo, and South West Africa and one or two occur in the Transvaal.
