Pseudonympha trimeni gaika Riley 1938 Trans. Ent. Soc., London, 87.234. The holotype (in B.M.) was taken by me on Gaika's Kop in the Amatola range in 1933. In January, 1938, I camped for some days on the Natal-Basutoland border five miles from the eastern escarpment of the Drakensberg in the Giant's Castle area at an altitude of 9,000 feet. I found this beautiful form in some quantity. In January, 1939, I climbed Mount Machacha, the highest peak of the Malutis on the western side of Basutoland, where again this subspecies was fairly common.
