The Chloephorinae, Sarrothripini (Lepidoptera: Nolidae) of Papua Indonesia
by Rob de Vos
Nycteola pseudoindica Holloway, 2003
STATUS: Widely distributed, probably from the Sunda region to Australia. Holloway (2003) suspects not only the Sri Lanka specimens but also the specimens from New Guinea and Queensland (Australia) to belong to an undescribed species although this has not been verified yet. Until this has been clearified we consider this species to belong to pseudoindica.
PAPUA LOCALITIES: New Guinea: Mt. Goliath, Sibil, Walmak. Details in gazetteer.
EXTERNAL DISTRIBUTION: Sri Lanka, Penang (Malaysia), Singapore, Java, Borneo, Goodenough Island, Queensland (Australia).
DATA SOURCES: BMNH, RMNH. Literature: Holloway, 2003.
