Since January 2009, both authors organized field trips to collect Lymantriid moths in Ghana and Liberia. The field trips targeted mostly forest areas and a total of more than 180 species of lymantriids were caught, most of which were also processed for obtaining DNA samples. It is anticipated that among these species quite a few are new to science amongst others in the genera Dasychira and Euproctis.
