Abstract

Samples of Lepidoptera of genus Bebearia Hemming, 1960 deposited in their majority in the MUHNAC collection are studied; they proceed especially from Guinea-Bissau, Angola and Mozambique. Five new subspecies are described, three from the northern Angola and one from the north-eastern Mozambique belong to the “group mardania”; a further one, from the north-western Angola, includes the “group sophus”.
