Sexually dimorphic African forest butterflies.
Ackery et al. (1995) consider Euryphura to be a subgenus of Euriphene. The null hypothesis suggested by the naming of two subgenera is that they are reciprocally monophyletic. They are thus indicated as distinct clades until relevant evidence is brought to bear.
