Nucras intertexta


Nucras intertexta


  (SMITH, 1838)


Eastern Namibia from Tsumkwe south to Aminius. An isolated record (originally listed as N. tessellata) from Bethanie collected in 1891 (Boettger, 1893), needs re-examination. Mertens (1955 & 1971) recognised typical N. intertexta, N. intertexta holubi and N. intertexta damarana from Namibia. Broadley (1972) transfered damarana and holubi to taeniolata (now N. holubi), recognizing only holubi as a valid subspecies. Although the Namibian population is presumed to be continuous with the Botswana population (along the central-eastern border), this has not yet been demonstrated. This species is known or expected to occur in the Kaudom Game Park, Mangetti Game Camp, Etosha National Park, Skeleton Coast Park, Waterberg Plateau Park, Von Bach Recreation Resort, Park Daan Viljoen Game Park and the Hardap Recreation Resort.
