Survey on south side of Mt Bonsupiori at Supiori
Since 1982 an area of 42,000 ha has become a reserve, with a highly diverse flora and fauna, including many insects not yet described.
In the survey an altitude of only 600 meter was reached, although to top is at 1,034 meter. In an area of about 5 km2 during 29 days in the period March-May 2004, 110 species of the superfamily Papilionoidea were collected: 11 Papilionidae, 7 Pieridae, 39 Lycaenidae and 53 Nymphalidae. As endemics can be mentioned Dicallaneura princessa, Deudorix maudei (Lycaenidae), Euploea tripunctata, E. albicosta, Taenaris scylla, Cirrochroa imperatrix (Nymphalidae) and a Mycalesis sp. which is probably a new species. Full results are presented in a final paper of Evie L. Warikar (2004), to graduate at the Cenderawasih University in Jayapura.
