Hyalobathra coenostolalis Snellen, [1890]; PED 8

  • Taxonomy

    The male lectotype of Botys coenostolalis Snellen, 1890: 582 is from India, Sikkim.

    Multiple misspell. caenostolalis and incorrect references as Snellen, 1880 (Including (lepIndex).

    Syn. Leucocraspeda udeoides (Hampson, 1891:134 pl.155 fig. 17) is from India (Nilgiris).

  • Description

    Wing length: 10mm. The co-type from Sikkim (illustrated) has a pronounced dark orbicular blotch on the chestnut brown FW. Some specimens from Taiwan lack the dark blotching and are much brighter orange brown with a distinct yellowish orange patch near the FW tip.

    All specimens seen from Borneo (e.g. Schulze (2000) taxon #276) lack the dark blotching and most are rather dull brown and indistinctly marked (Schulze (2000) taxon #522). These latter morphotypes may not be conspecific. Ebulea [Pyrausta] obliquata Moore 1888: 224 may be a var. See Hyalobathra sp. 4.
