Noctuelia dichroalis Hampson, [1903]; PED 7

  • Taxonomy

    The holotype of Noctuelia dichroalis Hampson, 1903b :224 from Sri Lanka (Matale) is in the NHM. A generic revision of Noctuelia is probably required as members of the Noctuelia tapsusalis group are visually very different from this purple-brown and yellow N. dichroalis group.

  • Description

    Wing length : 13mm. Some of this group of distinctive purple-brown and yellow spp. resemble Conogethes spp. They are found over much of tropical Asia. See Noctuelia spp. 1, & 2 which have similar patterning.
