NOTEWORTHY RECORDS OF SATURNIIDS FROM NORTHERN MYANMAR WITH NOTES ON THE TRUE IDENTITY OF LOEPA DIVERSIOCELLATA (LEPIDOPTERA, SATURNIIDAE)
AbstractRecords for fifteen Saturniid taxa from northen Myanmar, Kachin state, are given. Those for Salassa katschinica Bryk, 1944, Cricula zubsiana Nässig, 1985, Actias winbrechlini Brechlin, 2007 and Loepa diversiocellata Bryk, 1944 are notheworthy records. Indeed, Cricula zubsiana is reported for the first time for this country. Salassa katschinica was apparently known only on the typical series. New records for the recent described Actias winbrechlini are reported. The true identity of Loepa diversiocellata is briefly discussed on the basis of comparisons of the holotype with recently collected specimens.
