"They may be considered typical of the region of equatorial rain-forests, as they seem to be absent from the bushveldt to the north of Niangara, although in the latter place they are still common. The large forest galleries along the Uele and its affluents evidently still furnish a suitable environment."

I was expecting this to be L. ludoviciana, but the plant has deeply pinnitifid upper leaves with narrow winged, non-clasping bases, which points to L. hirsuta--much less common. Plants of this species were often bitten off--deer browse I assume; I only found this one with an intact inflorescence.

these along the river here were extremely numerous-often a half dozen per flower, plant after plant (on Goldenrod and Juda's Bush). photographs may be of separate individuals-on Juda's Bush. FWIW-I have observed this moth as rare on the Current, fairly common at Deep Ford (Big Sugar) and extremely abundant at Cow Skin on the lower Elk. I have yet to see one anywhere on Mike's Creek.
