Liptena xanthostola xanthostola Holland
Teriomima xanthostola Holland, 1890a: 429. Liptena xanthostola: Stempffer and
Bennett, 1956: 506. ? Liptena xantha coomassiensis Hawker -Smith, 1933: 8.
This species ranges from Guinea ('Nzerekore, C. M.) and Liberia eastward to Cameroon, Gabon, and on to Uganda, in the latter area as a distinct subspecies {xantha Grose-Smith) . Hawker-Smith ( 1933 ) discriminated his coomassiensis from xantha, but made no mention of xanthostola. Should the Occidental African populations prove different from those of Cameroon and Gabon, his name is available. The single specimen at hand from Guinea is inconclusive on the point.
Liberia: Kpain, II, III, X (Stempffer and Bennett, 1956).
