Comprehensive Description

provided by Memoirs of the American Entomological Society
[Coeliades aeschylus (Plotz)]
Ismene aeschylus Plotz. 1884a: 65 (Senegal).
Since no material of this species is present in Carnegie Museum, we leave it tentatively in Coeliades, but the descriptions given by Plotz and Evans (1937: 10) suggest it may belong to the following genus. Thus far unknown from Liberia, aeschylus has been reported from Senegal (Plotz), the Federation of Mali (Berger, 1962: 447), and "Gambia to Gold Coast 1 ' (Evans, 1937: 10), suggesting that it may be taken in our area in the future.
