The consumption of shellfish by non-Bantu groups who lived along the south and south-east coast of South Africa has been extensively documented in archaeological literature. Traveller's accounts and early ethnographic descriptions of the Bantu-speaking peoples of present-day Transkei and Ciskei with few exceptions stress the absence of a tradition of fishing, often ascribing it to a prohibition against eating fish. The study fills a gap in the ethnography of the Southern Nguni living in the coastal districts of the Transkei.

A study of the distribution and abundance of some eagles in the Cape Province based upon a postal survey followed by a ground-truth survey. Despite certain disadvantages attached to such a survey, and the vast area covered, it was possible to obtain a valid picture of the distribution of the species involved as well as realistic estimates of their abundance. It was not possible to make statements on an trends that may exist but the survey indicated that of the nine species of eagles that are known to breed in the Cape Province five appear to have viable, albeit small, populations while a sixth species may be declining to extirpation.

Maps showing the past and present (1970s) distribution of 55 taxa of breeding and non-breeding diurnal raptor occuring in the Cape Province, South Africa, are presented. The compilation of these maps is such that any major range fluctuations which have taken place on a temporal basis are indicated. Almost a quarter of the taxa show a decrease, most show no change, and only two indicate an increase. The value of this information for long-term monitoring studies and for conservation purposes is mentioned. The limitations of the survey are discussed.

Heleophryne Regis, which has for some time been regarded as the eastern subspecies of the H. purcelli complex in the Cape Folded Mountain Belt, has a mating call distinct from typical H. purcelli and is therefor reinstated to specific rank. It is geographically isolated from other species in the southern Cape Province. An account of the species past taxonomic history is presented. Certain morphological characters hitherto employed to distinguish H. regis from its cogeners do not withstand critical scrutiny.

A new species of ghost frog, genus Heleophryne, is described. H. hewitti sp. nov. is known only from the Elandsberg Mountains, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. It is geographically isolated from Heleophryne regis and other Heleophryne populations in the southern Cape Province. Diagnostic features include a unique mating call and characteristic dorsal colour-pattern. It is considered to belong to the H. purcelli/regis species complex in the Cape Folded Mountain Belt. Certain morphological features shared by members of this complex are identified and presented.

The populations of hinged tortoises found in Africa south of Lat.25 degrees south are reviewed. Kinixys Natalensis Hewitt is reinstated as a full species. The southern material of Kinixys Belliana Gray appears to represent two subspecies. The large brightly patterend tortoises with thick-boned convex carapaces are assigned to the typical form (synonym: K.B. zuluensis Hewitt) which in this region is restricted to the coastal plain. The smaller relatively weakly patterned tortoises with thin depressed carapaces are assigned to K.B. spekii Gray (synonym: k. Australis Hewitt), which inhabits the escarpment and plateau areas but which descends onto the coastal plain in Mocambique.

Stapled wraps, p363-p371. illustrated map, 184mm wide x 240mm high. New unread copy. Cape Provincial Museum, Albany Museum, Grahamstown, Natural History. Volume 16. Part 15. 29th July 1988.
Records from the 19thC of the Wattled Crane Bugeranus carunculatus(Gmelin) and place names containing the element 'kraan' (= crane) in the Cape Province and the Orange Free State, South Africa, are reviewed. Summer breeding is shown to have occurred in the Western Cape. Breeding probably occured in the Eastern Cape. There is at least one breeding record from the Transkei. Breeding occurred along the northwestern and norther borders of the Orange Free State and probably more widely before the disturbance caused by the campaigns of Shaka Zulu. The decrease in the southern populations to the point where there is one breeding pair left is attributed to the effects of disturbance by humans and their cattle, starting with the arrival of cattle in the southwestern Cape over 1800 years ago.

#23504 Cambray, J.A. ANNALS OF THE CAPE PROVINCIAL MUSEUMS. Volume 18. Part 8. Early Ontogeny And Notes On Breeding Behaviour, Habitat Preferance And Conservation Of The Cape Kurper, Sandelia (Pisces: Anabantidae). Stapled wraps, p159-p182. illustrated, 184mm wide x 240mm high. New unread copy. Cape Provincial Museum, Albany Museum, Grahamstown, Natural History. Volume 18. Part 8. 30th April 1990.
The development of the eggs, free embryos and larvae of Sandelia capensis is described from laboratory-reared specimens. The eggs had 1.0-1.4 mm diameters, adhesive egg envelopes, narrow perivitelline spaces and single oil globules 0.62 mm in diameter. The eggs were negatively buoyant. The free embryos hatched at a premature ontogenetic stage and were 3.0-3.6 mm NL. They attached themselves to objects using the adhesive surface on the dorsum of their heads. At 4.7 mm NL the oil globule began to migrate dorsally and divided into a right and left globule and during that period the swimbladder inflated. Thes asymmetrical oil globules disappeared at between 6.3-6.9 mm NL. The swimbladder began to extend posteriorly at 6.25 mm SL and reached maximum posterior penetration to the caudal peduncle at 14.4 mm SL. The larval fishes commenced feeding at 5.35mm NL. Pelvic buds formed between 6.9-7.2 mm SL. The larval fish transformed to juveniles by 13.0mm SL. Notes on the breeding behaviour, habitat preference and conservation of S. capensis are included.

Pseodobarbus afer (Peters 1864) and P. asper (Boulenger 1911) are a sister species which inhabit different sections of the Gamoos River system. P. afer occurs in the clear mountain streams of the Cape Fold Belt and P; asper in the turbid Karoo section of the river system. The seasonal occurrence and disappearance of tubercles for both species followed the reproductive cycle and was probably under seasonal hormonal control.

New unread copy. Cape Provincial Museum, Albany Museum, Grahamstown, Natural History. Volume 18. Part 6. 28th July 1989.
Five morphological characters were measured on museum specimens of two closely related double-collared sunbird species, Nectarina afra (Linnaeus) and Nectarina chalybea (Linnaeus), and their wing-moult was examined. The mensural data were analysed and compared statistically to assess the validity of the races currently recognised for each species. We conclude that the races Nectarina c. albilateralis Winterbottom and N. c. capricornensis (Roberts) are not seperable, and that the racesN. c. chalybea (L). N. c. subalaris (Reichenow), N. a. afra (L).and N. a. saliens Clancy are based on rather arbitrary grounds. Moult data support the recognition of two races in the case of N. chalybea, but not for N. afra. Clinal variation in size occurs in both species, but it is not the same in each species, not the same for all characters. Further field study of habitat preferences, seasonal movements, and possible physiological differences is needed.

Archaeological excavations reveal stone age artifacts. Percy Fitzpatrick (of 'Jock Of The Bushveld' fame), said in his private records, "There was a secret and a fascination in the mysterious 'craters' that appealed to the adventurous. The rugged ironstone throats, choked with treacherous black mud or blue and yellow clays, whence came the ooze and the hot mineral springs and the faint smell of sulphur, might lead anywhere and mean anything".

Stapled wraps, p305-p344. illustrated. 184mm wide x 240mm high. New unread copy. Cape Provincial Museum, Albany Museum, Grahamstown, Natural History. Volume 19. Part 6. 29th April 1996.
The distribution pattern of 44 alien and translocateed freshwater aquatic animals in Southern Africa (excluding Zimbabwe & Mozambique) are updated and reassessed. A comparison with 1988 records indicates the prescence of two alien species not recorded in natural waters. The distribution of 5 species, previously recorded in catchments outside their native ranges have been extended into new catchments. The common carp Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus 1758 has invaded more catchments than any other species and its range has recently been extended into the Phongolo and upper Mkuze systems. The composition of alien species in each major catchment and the catchments invaded by individual alien species are documented. Certain waterbodies of high conservation status (Okavango, Lake Sibaya and the Mkuze swamps) in sub-tropical regions are free of alien fish. It is recommended that special measures be taken to prevent introduction of alien species into these systems. Potential introductions through interbasin transfer schemes are also discussed.

Lake Sibayi, some 40 000 hectares in extent, is situated on the coastal plain of Zululand and is separated from the sea by forested dunes rising to a height of 180 metres. It has a depth of 40 metres, however, the surface is 22 metres above sea level. Although the lake is at present a freshwater system, past association with the sea is evinced by the marine affinities of much of its fauna.

The location,topography, climate, and vegetation of the area are discussed. An annotated list of 241 species arranged on the basis of their ethology is given. A discussion of the nesting behaviour of the community shows how the diversity of the ethology of such a large number of sympatric species results in their ecological displacement. Gives some indication of the phylogenetic pattern leading to this diversity.

The South Africa species of the genus Ceramius Latreille are fairl well known, at least from a taxonomic aspect, having in recent years been studied by Richards (1962) and by Gess (1965 and 1968). Nevertheless, Ceramius material in the Albany Museum, in the private collection of Mr. H. N. Empey and in the collections made in South Africa by Dr. J. Rozen (1965 and 1968) and by Dr. and Mrs. H. Townes (1970), combined with collecting and field observations by the author and by Mr. J. G. H. Londt, has brought to light some interesting additional information.

Some aspects of the ethology of three Southern African species of Isodontia, I. simoni, I. pelopoeiformis, and I. stanleyi are described. Particular attention is paid to: the situation and nature of the nest; the nature of the materials introduced into it and the manner of their arrangements; provisioning; oviposition. With respect to I. pelopoeiformis, the most common species, accounts are given also of the life history, sequence of sexes in the nests, cannibalism and parasites. Certain aspects of 14 Isodontia species are briefly reviewed. I. simoni is shown to differ from the other species in that the pre-existing cavity chosen for nesting is situated in horizontal ground and not in vertical banks, in plants, or in other situations above ground level. On the basis of the situation of its nest and the nature of the materials introduced into it, I. simoni is considered to be primitive, a conclusion which agrees with that reached by other authors from a consideration of structural characters.

It is estimated that at present between five hundred and six hundred species of the family Pompilidae have been described from the Ethopian Region excluding Madagascar. As far as can be ascertained, not a single African species has been studied with respect to its ethology; indeed, the only published biological information pertaining to these nearly six hundred species appears to consist of about half a dozen prey records involving as many species of wasps, a list of species visiting a plant attractive to Hymenoptera, and a few other fragments in which the identity of the wasp concerned is not clearly stated.

Some aspects of the ethology of Chalybion (Hemichalybion) spinolae (Lepeletier) are described, particular attention being paid to the situation and nature of the nest, the mode of its construction, provisioning, and sealing. Published accounts concerning the nesting of species of Hemichalybion are briefly reviewed. Data attributed to certain species, including H. spinolae, are shown to be misleading due to confusion by some authors of species of Hemichalibion with those of Sceliphron. The nesting of Hemichalybion (as exempified by that of H. spinolae here described) is discussed with reference to that of Sceliphronini as a whole. Possible specific interactions between three spider-hunting Sceliphronini nesting at Hilton are touched upon as is resource partitioning with respect to their prey.

A black carbonaceous shale, exposed in road cuttings that intersected rocks of the Witpoort Formation (Witteberg Group) in the Eastern Cape Province South Africa, has yielded a variety of fossil remains that have added considerably to our knowledge of Late Devonian life in Southern Africa. The rocks are interpreted as having been deposited in a coastal setting with the black shale representing a stagnant back-barrier lagoon. Among the life forms present are charophyte and possible phaeophyte algae and a diverse arrary of plant types including members of the Rhyniopsida, Zosterophyllopsida, Lycopsida and Progymnospermopsida. Arthropods are represented by the remains of Ostracoda, Conchostraca, and Euryperteridae; fish by antiarch and arthrodire placoderms, acanthodians, chondrichthyans, crossepterygians and dip;noans.

Quartinia (10 spp). and Quartinioides (30 spp). The records so far assembled indicate that Southern African masarids are most commonly associated with Mesembryanthemaceae (51%) and Compositae (28%), those species visiting flowers of other families such as Campanulaceae (12%), Scrophulariaceae (5%), Leguminosae (Papilionatae) (3%) and Liliacea (2%) being the exceptions. It is demonstrated that the majority of species exhibit fidelity to particular families or even genera of plants and that some species at least are probably of importance as pollinators to the plants which they visit.

A new species of Helcogramma, H. fuscopinna, which ranges across the Indo-West Pacific (excluding the Red Sea) from as far south as Durban to southern Japan, is described. Two new species of Enneapterygius, E. clarkae from the western Indian Ocean including the Red Sea, and E. ventermaculus from Zululand, Aden, & Pakistan, are described. The possibility that Enneapterygius may not be monophyletic is discussed. Gillias capensis is assigned to a new genus, Cremnochorites, and the species is redescribed. Reference is made to certain osteological features of the family, particularly the prescence of a free pterygiophore between the second and third dorsal fins and the occurence of a septal bone in certain tripterygiid genera.

Teloganodidae stat. nov. is recognised at family rank and shown to be a sister group to Ephemerellidae. Cladistic analysis of monophyletic species groups was performed and the most parsimonius cladogram presented and discussed in terms of evolutionary trends and instances of homoplasy. There are two major clades; these are recognised as the subfamilies Austremerellinae: Austremerella subfam. nov. and Teloganodinae. Genera are defined cladistically by autapomorphies, and sequencing conventions within the context of a strictly phlogenetic classification allow their recognition at this rank. Two genera are recognised in the Austremerellinae: Austremerella from Australia and Vietnamella from southeastern Asia. Six genera are recognised in the Teloganodinae: Ephemerellina, Nadinella gen. nov., Lithogloea, and Lestagella from Southern Africa, and Macafertiella and Teloganodes from southern Asia. Previous interpretations of Austremerella and Lithogloea as subgenera of Ephemerellina were based upon symplesiomorphies and are untenable. Each genus is disctinctive in both larval and adult stages, and a stage-correlated key is provided. Descriptive and geographic accounts or each higher taxon are given and known species listed. The new genus Nadinella contains two nominal species: N. crassi (Allen & Edmunds) comb. nov. and N. brincki (Demoulin) comb. nov. Australian and South African genera are shown to be archaic phylogenetic relicts with origins in Gondwanaland prior to the initial breakup of that landmass. It is hypothesised that the prescence of Oriental lineages has resulted from Australasian interchange in the case of Austremerellinae, and Africa to Asia transport via the Indian subcontinent in the case of Teloganodinae.

Mermithid and microsporidial parasites found in simuliid larvae were monitored in the Vaal River near Warrenton. Predators and their feeding behaviour on all life cycle stages. Several species of vertebrates and invertebrates were recorded as simuliid predators for the first time. Opportunistic and specialist predatory behaviour was observed. An assessment is made of the role these various predator species in limiting the population size of Simulium chutteri Lewis, a bloodsucking livestock pest in the region. Observations made subsequently in and along other river systems have revealed further instances of predation on larval and adult stages of the Simuliidae.

Some aspects of the adaptive radiation of African accipitrine hawks are discussed in this study, based on the wing and culmen measurements of seven species; Accipiter minullus (Daudin), A. badius (Gmelin), A. ovampensis (Gurney), A. rufiventris (Smith), A. tachiro (Daudin) and A. melanoleucus (Smith), Melierax gabar (Daudin). These measurements are discussed in relation to observations on habitats and hunting methods. The species were found to be spread over an even size-gradient, though they form three groups in size, habitat and hunting methods. In all seven species the female is larger then the male. A. ovampensis and A. rufiventris are morphologically similar but appear to be allopatric. M. gabar appearsto have occupied an available position in the Accipiter series.

Three Southern Africa families of Trichopter, the Hydrosalpingidae, Petrothrincidae, and Barbarochthonidae, erected recently (Scott 1985) to accomodate the genera Hydrosalpinx, Petrothrincus and Barbarochthon (all Barnard 1934), are fully described, illustrated, and discussed. As far as is known all three genera are endemic to South Africa and appear to be relicts of the Gondwanan south temperate fauna. They are largely confined to the western, southwestern and southern coastal folded belt. Petrothrincus and Barbarochthon have also been recorded from the Eastern Cape Province and Barbarochton from Natal. Specific descriptions are given for the single species of Hydrosalpinx and Barbarochthon, and for the three species, one new, of Petrothrincus. A key to the species of Petrothrincus is given. The three families are placed in the superfamily Sericostomatoidea Stephens 1836, sensu Weaver 1983 of the suborder Integripalpia. Phylogenetic relationships of the twelve families considered to belong to the Sericostomatoidea are investigated using cladistic methods.

This zoo-historical gazetteer, embracing as it does a synonymy of place-names and the type-localities of all mammals and birds up to 1970, covers most of Southern Africa south of the Kunene and Zambesi Rivers. But because several type-localities of several critical species occur to the north of these geographical limitations, the relevant place-names in Angola, Zambia, Malawi, etc. have been included. To a lesser degree Tanzania is also represented. The main work in compilation has been the assembling of old place-nams recorded by early travellers, hunters, missionaries, military men and so on, and to key these names to their modern equivalents or, if no modern name exists, to find where the quoted place was and to fix its position as nearly as possible by means of lap coordinates of latitude and longitude.

The redfin minnows of Southern Africa form a distinctive group of cyprinid species traditionally placed within the genus Barbus. The species are distributed within the rivers of the Cape Fold Mountains in South Africa and the Drakensberg and Maluti Mountains in Lesotho. The taxonomic history of the species is reviewed with the conclusion that at least two closely similar species pairs require further taxonomic investigation. A broad based character analysis of all the species is presented and taxonomic conclusions made. The character analysis indicates that two natural groups or monophyletic lineages are present, one of which is sufficiently different from all other Barbus species to warrant separate generic status. The genus Pseudobarbus is defined and redescriptions of all the redfin species are provided. A neotype is selected for Pseudobarbus burchelli. Aspects of the conservation of these fishes is discussed.

The aims of this paper are to present briefly the history of the fish collection in the Albany Museum and to catalogue its present type holdings. The present collection is a comparatively recent development and its type holdings have not yet been published. A number of earlier types of both marine and freshwater fishes which were originally in the museum are no longer housed there and it is therefore necessary to clarify which types are present. The present type holdings post-date the South African Museums Association (1958, 1962) list of zoological and botanical types preserved in collections in southern and east Africa.

Large tracts of land in southern Africa are infested by harvester termites, Hodotermes mossambicus (Hagen). Although the recommended treatment with sodium fluosilicate bait is effective, implementation of this method on a large scale proved to be impractical. This led to the temporary registration by the Department of Agriculture Technical Service in 1964 of dieldrin coverspraying at a dosage of 87,4 g/ha (2,76 oz per morgen). Due to worldwide concern about the use of organochlorines in general and dieldrin in particular, the permanent registration of dieldrin depended on the outcome of longterm investigations into all its effects.

The ecological and behavioural study of free-ranging monkeys and apes formed one of the most rapidly expanding fields of biological research in the last decade. Of no less importance for comparative psychobiology was the increase in systematic studies of the smaller cetaceans, the group of large-brained marine mammals including dolphins and pilot whales. It has been stated that there are striking similarities in the social behaviour of some of the higher primates and dolphins - two forms occupying very different environments and differing markedly in anatomical and morphological characteristics. This paper compares the qualitative behaviours under the headings of social dominance, sexual behaviour, socialisation, and response to the environment.

61 new species are described and 55 previously described species are redescribed. The aedeagus and other diagnostic features or each species are illustrated. The 116 species are divided into 19 sections. A key to the males of the sections and meys to the males of the species within each section are shown. A short discussion is given of 22 previously described species of which insufficient or no material was available. Four previously described species are found to be synonymns: Aulacoderus manzeri is a synonym of A. picheyrei; A. middletoniensis is a synonym of A. tumefactus. A. subrotundipennis is a synonym of A. rotundipennis. A. sulcatus is a synonym of A. funebris. A. bicoloritarsis is probably a synonym of A. robusticeps however as no type material of the latter species was available this question is left open. A. melitensis has been changed to A. sulcithorax, subspecies melitensis. It occurson Malta and its anatomical features are identical to thos eo A. sulcithorax from Israel but the colour pattern is strikingly different.

Prey selection by several sympatric species of Ammophila W. Kirby was investigated. Prey-size requirements differed according to the size of wasps and their provisioning strategies but, because of overlap and changes in caterpillar size during development, this did not wholly explain observed interspecific differences in species and families of caterpillars taken. Differences were mainly the result of wasps hunting in different types of vegetation in which the most abundant suitably-sized caterpillers were taken. Specialisation by individuals on certain prey species indicated locality learning, maximising prey utilisation. The possibility of the observed prey selection being due to competition is discussed.

Nest structure, nesting behaviour, nesting success and nest mortality factors of 11 species of aculeate wasps were compared. It was concluded that nesting success depended largely on the activities of parasites. Overall nesting success as measured by the proportions of successful cells differed in only one of the species. The most important identifiable causes of nest/cell failure were attacks by Miltogramminae (Diptera), Chrysidae and Eulophidae (Melittobia sp).(Hymenoptera) with the addition of Osprynchotus sp. (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) in aerial mud nests. The unique nesting habits of each aculeate species provided protection only against specific types of parasites and success was therefore affected by the interaction between nesting habits and the size and species composition of parasite populations.
