GENUS : Protogoniomorpha
Protogoniomorpha is a genus of nymphalid butterflies found in the Afrotropical realm.

Protogoniomorpha was viewed as part of Salamis by Ackery et al. (1995), but Wahlberg et al. (2005) showed that it is a distinct genus, and that one of its former species (Protogoniomorpha cytora and possibly also the similar Protogoniomorpha temora) belongs in Junonia.
