More male than female emperor moths were

attracted to ultra-violet light. Females fly mainly before and males mainly after midnight. Among the 16 emperor moth species collected in the Kruger National Park, were the mopani emperor (Gonimbrasia belina (Westw.)) and the poplar emperor (Pseudobunaea irius (F.)). Ludia delegorguei (Bsd.) was collected at Punda Milia, which proves that the species does occur in the Transvaal.
