[Coeliades bixana Evans]
Papilio bixae Clerck, 1759: pi. 42, fig. 4 (not Linne) (no locality cited); preoccupied by Papilio bixae Linne, 1758, a neotropical species of the genus Pyrrhopyge.
Coeliades bixana Evans, 1940: 411 (Ghana).

Apparently bixana is unrecorded from Liberia, but it may be expected in at least the eastern part of the country. It has been reported from nearby Abidjan, Ivory Coast (Berger, 1962: 447), and Evans (1937: 11) records it from Ghana to Angola. There are specimens in Carnegie Museum from Ghana and Cameroon.
