species: meleagris Felder & Rogenhofer (= albopunctata
genus shares characters of the male eighth abdominal segment with such as Diomea
is therefore associated with them in the Boletobiini, a placement anticipated in
the original combination of nasea Swinhoe (see below) and by Yoshimoto
(1994). The general facies is consistent with this (see below), though the
speckled white fasciation is particularly strongly developed rather than obscure
and just associated with the postmedial when present. The male antennae are
fasciculate, and the third segment of the labial palps is much shorter than the
genitalia are similar to those of Diomea species
except the distal saccular process is set more to the interior of the valve and
is accompanied by a smaller subcostal process that is based more distally, near
the apex of the saccular one.
female genitalia have an appendix bursae typical of the group, and the corpus
bursae has a broad central zone that is invested with numerous small, slender
spines as in Artigisa and Panilla.
genus consists of the two species described below.
