Report on the Spring LepiBASH for LepiMAP, 15 - 23 October 2016
LepiMAP is the Atlas of African Lepidoptera. It is the continuation of the project known as SABCA (Southern African Butterfly Conservation Assessment). LepiMAP extends the taxonomy to both butterflies and moths, and extends the area under consideration to Africa. The LepiMAP project has held LepiBASH events twice a year, over a nine-day period from a Saturday to the following Sunday, during the southern autumn and spring. The 2016 Spring LepiBASH ran from Saturday, 15 October to Sunday, 23 October. During the nine days of the Spring LepiBASH, a total of 85 observers participated and a total of 2080 records were submitted, from 13 countries in Africa, including the first records from Senegal. 295 taxa have been identified.
