Lyclene pseudobunda sp.
The facies is as in pudibunda, but the
hindwing lacks a medial band. The male genitalia have only three cornuti (two
opposite one) in the vesica rather than a row of five or more opposite a single
one; the valve lacks a central angle to the sacculus but has a complex round
flap in the centre just dorsal to the sacculus. In the female the ductus is
longer, with a deep cleft in the ostium.
