Authaeretis sp.1; PED 12

  • Taxonomy

    Authaeretis sp. 1. Specimen #4784 of a morphotype from Sabah (PHS) in the Schulze Coll.

  • Description

    The brown FW has a white reniform mark and both wings have pale postmedian lines. Both post median lines are looped with pale patches anteriorly on the FW. Some specimens have a distinct white band at the base of the abdomen. A similar morphotype Authaeretis sp. 2 has much less distinct markings. It also has a white band on its abdomen and may be conspecific. Schulze (2000) Taxon #439.

    See Protonoceras capitalis Fabricius, P. dolopsalis Walker and Protonoceros sp. 1 which differ in the shape and smoothness of the FW post median line. Some Herpetogramma spp. such as H. pseudovialis Hampson and H. luctuosalis (Guenée) are similar and may be misplaced.
