171. Hamanumida daedalus ( Fabricius, 1775) 

WL: 31mm. H. daedalus  is centered on the Guinea savanna, but is known to extend to open forest and agricultural areas, occuring across sub-Saharan Africa. This species is very frequent along forest trails where it flies quite low, usually no more than 20 cm above the ground. Males are highly territorial, patrolling their territories. Caterpillars feed on several Combretaceae  .
