Five new species and one subspecies of the family Micronoctuidae (Lepidoptera, Noctuoidea) (Bellulia bibella sp. n., Parachrostia pura sp. n., Tactusa virga sp. n., T. flexus sp. n., T. brevis sp. n., and T. discrepans yunnanensis ssp. n.) are described from South China (provinces Yunnan and Guizhou). Three species, Mimachrostia fasciata Sugi, 1982, T. discrepans Fibiger, 2010 and T. pars Fibiger, 2010 are reported from China for the first time. An updated checklist of the Micronoctuidae from China, including Taiwan is presented consisting of 28 species and 2 two subspecies. Copyright © 2011 Magnolia Press. Source


This is the fourth part in a series of papers on the recently described family Micronoctuidae Fibiger, 2005. Part 4 includes the description of Tantaxinae, new subfamily, and Micronoctuinae, and 15 genera (13 new): Acusa, Tentasetae, Pseudobscura, Parens, Alienia, Tentaspina, Tentax, Flax, Medius, Sternitta, Dextella, Paradoxica, and Dorsum (all new). Twogenera are redescribed: Micronola Amsel, 1935 and Micronoctua Fibiger, 1997. A total of 93 species are treated (81 new, one new subspecies; 12 species are redescribed). Six new combinations are given. Additions are given to the previously published parts of the revision: Pollexinae Fibiger, 2007 (one new species), Belluliinae Fibiger, 2008a (one species from Fibiger et al. 2011), Parachrostiinae Fibiger, 2011 (one species from Fibiger et al. 2011), Tactusinae Fibiger, 2010 (three species and one subspecies from Fibiger et al. 2011, and 11 new species in three new genera). Taxa inhabit the Arabian Peninsula, and Asian, Oriental, and Oceania regions in tropical, subtropical, and temperate zones both north and south ofthe equator. Three preoccupied generic names, Dignus Fibiger, Fustis Fibiger, and Obscura Fibiger, proposed as new in Fibiger 2010, are replaced by Dignius Fibiger, 2011, Fustius Fibiger, 2011, and Obscurior Fibiger, 2011, resulting in 15 new combinations.

This is the third part of a series of papers on the recently described family Micronoctuidae Fibiger, 2005. Part 3 includes the description of one new subfamily: Tactusinae, with two new tribes: Tactusini and Obscurini; and 18 new genera: Tactusa, Conspica, Tumula, Dignus, Vas, Nigerides, Fustis, Bruma, Costasensora, Longiantrum, Abes, Asyprocessa, Tantulius, Asylemissa, Clarior, Obscura, Editum, and Asytegumen. A total of 77 species and one subspecies are described, of which 76 species are new. One new combination is given. As additions to previously published parts 1 and 2 of the revision, one new genus, Sinochrostia in the subfamily Parachrostiinae, is described. Three new species of Pollexinae Fibiger, 2007, are described; three new species of subfamily Belluliinae are described; and six new species of Parachrostiinae are described, five in the genus Duplex, and one new species and one new subspecies in teh genus Mimachrostia.

Nota Lepidopterologica | Year: 2010

During an expedition to Sumatra in February and March 2002 the authors discovered an undescribed zygaenid moth: Phauda bicolor, sp. n. Forty five specimens were obtained. In order to clarify its systematic position one specimen was preserved in ethanol for molecular analysis. The male and female genitalia are illustrated. A potential related species from North India: Phauda fuscalis Swinhoe, 1892 is compared. DNA sequence of the mitochondrial gene cytochrome oxidase subunit I is included in the character set. Source
