Rusicada prima

. See combinans above. The hindwing margin has a slight but distinct central projection. In the male genitalia the juxta is apically square, broadest at that point; the largest cornutus in the aedeagus vesica is apically bulbous. The cleft of the posterior lobes of the lamella postvaginalis terminates in a posteriorly directed pocket in this and the remaining species; it is much smaller than the lobes in prima, almost as large in leucolopha Prout and much larger (deeper) in albitibia Walker.

Geographical range. India to Sundaland.

Habitat preference. The species has been taken infrequently in forested localities from the lowlands to as high as 1780m.
