58. Iolaus ismenias (Klug, 1834) 

WL: 19mm. The species is typical of the Sudan savanna, although it has already been recorded from Senegal to Cameroon, DRC, Sudan, Ethiopia and Uganda. It has only been reported to occur in Guinea-Bissau by Larsen (2005), with no additional details. The caterpillars feed on Loranthus  spp. ( Loranthaceae  ). Previous references. Regions: Without a precise location. Authors: Larsen (2005), Mendes et al. (2008). Probable abundance and proposed status. AB: R; CS: I.

59. Iolaus calisto (Westwood, 1851) 

WL: 19mm. The species occurs in all types of forest from Senegal to Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon and CARAbout CAR. During flight it resembles a small Pierid. The caterpillars feed on Loranthus  sp. or on species of other close genera ( Loranthaceae  ). 

Studied material. Cacheu: Caió, several specimens in 2009 (JB)
