hegyi büszkeség/szépség (nevű afrikai lepke)
Explanation:
Érzésem szerint ennek a lepkének szintén nincs hivatalos magyar neve. Angolul mountain beauty-nak vagy pride-nak vagy table mountain pride-nak hívják (az afrikai Tábla-hegyből kifolyólag).
Ezért javaslom a hegyi büszkeség/szépség neveket.

A latin névvel kapcsolatosan itt is kavarás van:
A lenti írás alapján a helyes latin neve: Aeropetes tulbaghia

"The genus name. People, including authors, often refer to the Mountain Beauty erroneously as Meneris tulbaghia rather than Aeropetes tulbaghia. How did this confusion arise?

*

Linnaeus in 1764 described the species as Papilio tulbaghia.
*

Billberg in 1820 evidently created the genus Aeropetes to hold Papilio tulbaghia and a castniid moth (i.e. he was pretty incompetent as a taxonomist) but he did not select a type species for the genus so the genus was poorly defined.
*

Doubleday in 1844 described the genus Meneris for which the type species was Papilio tulbaghia (by monotypy, i.e. it was the type species because it was the only species included under this genus by Doubleday).
*

In 1943 Hemming cleared up the mess in the genus Aeropetes by selecting (by subsequent designation) Papilio tulbaghia as the type species for this genus rather than the moth. As this genus was created earlier than Meneris it is therefore the valid genus for the Mountain beauty. If Hemming had selected the moth as the type species of Aeropetes, then Meneris would have become the valid genus name for this butterfly. "
