(Guinea). = Pardaleodes pusie'la Mabille, 1877c: 237 (Congo). Evans (1937: 105-106) considers the two names listed in the synonymy as subspecies, basing his decision on the separation or nonseparation of the fore wing spot in space M3-C111 from the cell spot. He gives a geographic distribution of the two "subspecies" which is not supported by examination of the Carnegie Museum series, in which the spots mentioned above are separated in scattered individuals throughout all series from various localities including the Liberian material. It seems inadvisable, therefore, to utilize Evans' subspecific designation of pusiella. This species, like incerta and the next one, is quite variable without regard to geographic factors.
This species occurs from Guinea to Angola thence east through Uganda to Kenya.
