The Prominent Moths (Lepidoptera: Notodontidae, Pygaerinae) of Papua Indonesia

by Alexander Schintlmeister



Allata (Celeia) lignea (Pagenstecher, 1894)

indistincta (Rothschild, 1917)








STATUS: The species is known to occur with certainty in Queensland (Australia) but two records mentioned below indicate that the species is apparently much wider distributed, although these may concern a sibling and undescribed species. According to Holloway (1983) the occurance on Java, Sulawesi and Borneo may also concern allied but different species.

PAPUA LOCALITIES: New Guinea: Ampas, Uskwar. Details in gazetteer.

EXTERNAL DISTRIBUTION: Queensland (Australia).
