Abstract

A new species of Bicyclus is described from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The species belongs to the ignobilis species-group, but has different androconial structure and slightly different wing pattern. Genitalia differences are very small as is expected within most Bicyclus species-groups. Comparison with the other known species in the ignobilis-group and discussion of biogeography of the different species are provided.
