I have been told that the atropos will go into 4 species. The so called " Four main populations" are each a different species.

I am under correction though as some where I heard there might be 5.

I'll be travelling with Bill Branch to Dubai, so may pick his brains and see where we are with B.atropos. Perhaps a similar situation which now exists with the cornuta/inornata complex which Bill sorted out in 97.

Superciliaris this was a Northern Cape specimen.
