Lower Guinea is an extremely rich region with over 1000 butterfly species and seems to be the centre of dispersal of certain genera: Charaxes, Euphaedra and Pseudacraea. .Many butterflies can remain rare for many years, suddenly appearing en masse and then just as suddenly disappearing again..Lokoue Bai (forest clearing), Odzala-Kokoua National Park, Cuvette, Republic of Congo.
