sundana sp. n..
Chasmina tibiopunctata Bethune-Baker sensu Holloway, 1976: 15.
In facies this species resembles C. coremata but is larger, with the
black dots at the vein ends more strongly developed, particularly over the
tornal half; in nigropunctata Bethune-Baker they are stronger over the
anterior half. In the male genitalia the valves are narrower basally, broader at
two thirds than in nigropunctata, apically less rounded, and with hair
setae less evenly distributed over the basal zone, much denser exteriorly and
towards the base of the valve. In a similar species from Sulawesi (slide 14215,?
celebensis Snellen) the valve is very broad, almost oblong, but broader
