Arctornis sp. 1659


Arctornis sp. 1659


Diagnosis.
A rather worn male (12mm) from 250m on the lower slopes of the limestone G. Api may represent a distinct species but is too damaged for formal description. The wings are satiny white, unmarked. The frons is pale rufous below the line of the antennae. The palps are moderate, slender, yellow. The genitalia (slide 1659) have a rather long, triangular uncus, valves with a distinctly bowed costal margin and a very long, slender harpe extending well beyond the valve apex. The species may belong with the sequence described next.
