IMG_0568 Cigaritis nilus

This specimen sat in ruderal grassland and was obviously newly emerged and not yet able to fly. There was a clouded sky and a squally wind which complicated the attempt of making photos.

IMG_0112 Agalinis sp (supposedly)

The genus of the false foxglove contents of about 70 species in the Americas which are hemiparasitic herbs. In S. Lisowski (2009) the genus is not listed for Guinea so I don't know if it is a rather newly occuring invasive plant or if I am simply wrong with my determination attempt.

(More information is highly appreciated).

IMG_0141 Myrmeleontidae Westafrica

In semi humid and dry grassland there were a few specimens of these rather large antlions with a wingspan of about 11 cm. When disturbed they flew off in a rather slow and weak manner and tried to hide immediately again down in the grass vegetation. I wonder which size the larvas must have!

Concerning the determination I couldn't find any information. Maybe a species of the genus Palpares? Help is highly welcome!

IMG_0411 Polystachya microbambusa

Its always pretty special if one finds a blooming orchid and during the end of the rainy season I didnt expect to find one. This specimen did grow in rock gravices of sandstone and I did examine the whole rocky area - it was the only blooming one. (in the picture there are two flowers - an open one and behind one still unfolded).

(in the picture there is an inflorescence on the left and some seed capsules on the right).

IMG_0196 Sandstone Rocks

For the highland of Moyenne Guinée that like rocks of sandstone are typical and they stand out of a rocky plateau which is often covered only by a very thin soil layer which allows just wet and semi humid grass land of poor nutrient conditions. In the gravices of these rocks mostly xerophilic herbs like orchids and shrubs - among them some species of fig trees - can survive.
