The subfamily Biblidinae contributes 12 species to the fruit-feeding assemblage from five different genera. None of the species could be regarded as common. The Biblidinae genus Mesoxantha is a non fruit-feeder.
Genus Neptidopsis: A genus containing only 2 species, one being recorded at Semuliki: N. ophione. This species was the most commonly trapped of the Biblidinae that were attracted to the traps.
