Welcome to the homepage of Martin Albrecht‘s Carcharodus project!

This is an overview of my research activities on the Hesperid  butterfly genus Carcharodus Hübner, 1819. Some preliminary results are also presented.  (Please note: These pages are not a scientific publication and therefore do not fulfil all the strict rules that are applicable in such a case.)

Since 2007 I am investigating this group of eight species in order to document its morphology, distribution and ecology in detail and to reach a better understanding of the systematics within the genus.
