The Emerald Moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Geometrinae) of Papua Indonesia

by Rob de Vos

Eucyclodes scintillans (Warren, 1906)

ssp. isorrhopia Prout, 1913


Distribution

 

 

 

 

 

STATUS: Widely distributed in New Guinea, in the western part represented by subspecies isorrhopia. Originally placed in the genus Prasinocyma but Eucyclodes seems more appropiate. Conspicuous characters for this are the undulate wingmargins and the broken tornal patches, typical in Eucyclodes. Both genera need a thorough revision.

PAPUA LOCALITIES: New Guinea: Borme, Demaisi, Mt. Goliath, Huri-Mber, Keerom, Mt. Kunupi, Mokwam, Syoubri (Arfak), Walmak. Details in gazetteer.

EXTERNAL DISTRIBUTION: Papua New Guinea.
