Xanthotaenia busirisAndrew V. Z. Brower
Xanthotaenia has traditionally been placed in Amathusiini, but Eliot (in Corbet et al. 1992) pointed out that the larval stages clearly place it among the satyrines. Molecular evidence (Wahlberg & Brower, unpubl.) corroborate that view, implying that the genus is allied to the basal Zetherina.
