If you have any Central African butterflies that need to be ID'd let me know. I can't guarantee I'll be able to give a definitive answer (there are 2000+ species in DRCongo alone), but I'll do my best.

My favourite online resources:

- http://metamorphosis.org.za/?p=articles&s=List&pt=166 (Up to date nomenclature for all Sub-Saharan African butterfly species.)
- http://acraea.com/ (takes a bit of getting used to, but all Acraea can be ID'd using this website.)

My favourite offline resources:

- "Les Papillons du Zaire" (Berger, 1981) - Out of date, but an incredible book for it's time... and really the only comprehensive book on butterflies in DRC.
- "Papillons du Gabon" (Vande weghe, 2010) - Another amazingly comprehensive book. Given to me by Steve Collins of the African Butterfly Research Institute.
- Torben Larsen's unpublished manuscript on African Skippers
- Michel Libert's various revisions
