Family vacation: Madagascar, 2013

It is hard to find a season in Madagascar less appropriate for collecting than July, which is precizely when we went there for a family vacation. The Northwest is in the middle of a brutal dry season, with all Urania many months gone. At that time, the Eastern rainforest in the middle of winter, with the emergence of Argemma moths still months away. Despite that, I was able to collect a few specimens. Just two endemic species made the whole trip worthwhile. Junonia rhadama (above) is the kind of butterfly that you only read about, but never quite believe it is real, until you catch one yourself. The greatest treasure, of course, is the huge (12 cm std. wing span) Pharmacophagus antenor (see below). Here is what Adalbert Seitz wrote about this creature in 1925:

"... The history of this magnificent species is very singular. Like antimachus it was first described and figured by the English collector D. Drury in his work 'Illustrations of Natural History'. Drury did not know the habitat of antenor and even in 1836 Boisduval had seen no specimen of this species, but reported that according to Hope it was a native of Timbuktu in the Western Sudan. Not until much later was it known that antenor inhabits Madagascar, where it only occurs on the west and south coasts, but not in the primeval forest region. antenor is allied to the East Indian Aristolochia Papilios and is one of the many proofs that the fauna of South Asia is more closely connected with the fauna of Madagascar than with that of the African continent."
