As a result of several collecting trips in South West Africa a total of 66 specimens of nocturnal eye-frequenting moths have been obtained from seven localities. The noctuids involved are Arcyophora longivalvis Guen., A. zanderi Feld. and A. patricula Hpsn.; they were collected from the eyes of domestic cattle and goats. The biotope forms part of the ""Tree Savanna and Woodland"", a series of the Guinea Savanna, Combretum spp. being the typical representative tree species of that plant association.
