Among them we identified four species, where only one of the sexes was described. Here, we describe unknown females of <em>Euriphene lomaensis</em> Belcastro, 1986, <em>E. taigola</em> Sáfián &amp; Warren-Gash, 2009 and <em>E. bernaudi</em> Hecq, 1994 with reference to the latter species’ taxonomic position (stat. rev.). We also describe the male of <em>Bebearia inepta</em> Hecq, 2001. We report observations on their habitats and behaviour and review their known distribution.</p> Sz. Sáfián S. C. Collins C.

Species composition and abundance rates of Geometridae communities were analyzed with respect to the plant formations of the region as deciduous forests, dry coniferous-oak forests, humid coniferous forests, pseudomaquis and farmlands. The results also indicates that 26 species in deciduous forests, 23 species in coniferous-oak forests, 20 species in humid coniferous forests, 20 in pseudomaquis and 20 species in farmlands have high abundance rate. The highest rates of abundance in deciduous forests and dry coniferous-oak forests belong to <em>Cyclophora linearia</em> (Hübner, [1799]) with 14,7% and <em>Peribatodes rhomboidaria</em> ([Denis &amp; Schiffermüller], 1775) 13,1%, respectively. Also, the highest rates of abundance in humid coniferous forests and pseudomaquis belong to <em>Scotopteryx moeniata</em> (Scopoli, 1763) with 23,46% and <em>Cyclophora puppillaria</em> (Hübner, [1799]) with 19,83%. Species richness is much higher in deciduous forests than it is in other habitats. Faunal similarities between the Geometridae communities are reported below 50% among all habitats. The highest faunal similarity was found to be between dry coniferous-oak forests followed by the second highest similarity between pseudomaquis and deciduous forests.</p> M.

Spanish Guinea was divided into two provinces after 1959: Fernando Poo province, including Fernando Poo and Annobon Islands and Rio Muni province, including the continental territory of Rio Muni and the islands of Elobey Grande, Elobey Chico and Corisco. It became an independent country in 1968, taking the name of Republic of Equatorial Guinea.<br />According to our investigations, two species of this Genus are present in Equatorial Guinea: <em>Euchromia guineensis</em> (Fabricius 1775) and <em>Euchromia lethe</em> (Fabricius 1775). In this work we revise their distribution and carry out the study of both male and female genitalia.</p> A.

In this study, a field survey was conducted in five fixed-distance belt transects during three years. Four indices were used to indicate the butterfly diversity. A total of 3004 individuals of 151 species belonging to 82 genera in 6 families were recorded in the survey. Among them, 67 species were recorded in Simian Mountain for the first time, and <em>Celastrina argiolus</em> (Linnaeus, 1758) was the dominant species; Nymphalidae was the dominant family. Among the five habitats, the species diversity of butterfly in Sample V was the highest, closely followed by that in Sample I in which ecological environment was relatively intact; and the diversity of butterfly in Sample IV, in which human<br>interference was strong, was least. According to our research, the butterfly diversity in habitats with better ecological environments was higher; while the butterfly diversity in habitats with the most intact ecological environment was not the highest; strong human interference could significantly decrease the diversity of butterfly.</p> Q.-L.
