A new butterfly record for Trinidad & Tobago

Frederick C. Urich


At about 9.30 a.m. at my "Sans Souci" estate in the Sangre Grande area, I netted a Satyrid, which on examination proved to be a butterfly that I had never seen before. From the two dirty yellowish oval spots, one on each side of the forewing, near the outer margin and roughly midway between the apex and tam us, I immediately realised that this was without any doubt, a new record for Trinidad and Tobago.The name of this Satyrid is: Magneuptychia libye.
