Found in Western tropical Africa from Sierra Leone
to Cameroon and Gabon. A ssp. occurs on Bioko. Not rare - found at times
puddling in large numbers at moist spots. It often treated as a ssp of
policenes, from which it "differs slightly in color and wing shape."
Liponesco is probably synonymous with G
nigrescens / policenoides, and all probably represent subspecies of
the widespread G policenes.
