It seems probable that Trimen overlooked these two species in specimens he must have examined from Natal. They are both superficially very like M. safitsa Hewitson, which is so common in all the coast bushes. I have good series of both the above species, which agree with the descriptionptions given by Aurivillius in Seitz, Macrolepidoptera, 13 : 94, and regard them as likely captures wherever Mycalesis fly.
