Bradina sp.6; PED 14

  • Taxonomy

    Bradina sp. 6. Specimens from Sabah in the Schulze Coll. Generic placement uncertain.

  • Description

    Wing Length: 13mm - 14.5mm. A unmarked dark brown sp. some with a coppery sheen. The underside is similar. The tip of extremely elongate abdomen of the male has a small pale scale tuft. This is not Bradina remipes Hampson,1896 as the HW lacks the pale costal area and the small patch of ochreous scales in the cell of that sp.. It resembles some Phostria & Coptobasis spp.

    The sp. appears fairly common if all the specimens are conspecific and the males and females correctly associated.
