Semalea sextilis (Plotz) (Fig. 70, S genitalia)
Hesperia sextilis Plotz, 1886: 89 (Aburi).
= Cobalus corvinus Mabille, 1889: 169 (Sierra Leone).
=Semalea noctula ab. "pusillima" Strand, 1912c: 52 (Cameroon).
S. sextilis, superficially separable from pulvina by the lack of a hindwing brand and from the next species by its darker coloration, is recorded from Sierra Leone (Mabille, 1889: 169) to Cameroon and east into Uganda (Evans, 1937: 121).
A Liberian specimen is the first record from that country: Zorzor, U,XI (Fox).
There are also specimens in the collection of Carnegie Museum from Cameroon, Rio Muni and Gabon, those from the last two countries representing further extensions of the known range of this skipper.
