Sabulepisma multifom is sp. nov. and Swalepisma mirabiIis sp. nov. are descriptionbed from the Namib Desert sand dunes, and Namibmormisma gen. nov. is proposed for some Namib species previously referred to Mormisma Silvestri. The probable phylogeny of these taxa is discussed. The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction to the Lepismatidae of the Namib dunes.
A list of all species recorded in the Naukluft mountains was compiled, using published sources (Hoesch & Niethammer 1940; MacdonaId 1957), the records of the ornithological section of the Directorate of Nature Conservation, South West Africa Namibia and our own records.
The aim of this study was to investigate the characteristics of roars, when roaring occuerred and to teat the hypothesis that lions have individual roaring patterns. For the purpose of this paper the roar is defined as the combination of moans resulting in fulI throated roars and grunts.
