Heliconiinae - Addendum


The following species were recorded from Indo-Chinese region in the past publications, however were omitted from the list by the reason written below.


Argynnis hyperbius lates (Tsukada, 1985)
[ THAILAND ]
Argyreus hyperbius sumatrensis ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 354, pl.151, figs.N8b♀,♀(Un). (Surat Thani)
Argyreus hyperbius lates ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 382, pl.164, figs.N211b♀,♀(Un). (Surat Thani)
Argyreus hyperbius lates ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 46. (by literature)
>>> Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded it from Surat Thani, P.Thailand however it seems dubious. I have never seen any specimens from Peninsular Thailand until now. And according to Mr.Sudjai Ruangrit who is the best researcher in Ranong - Surat Thani area, he also hes never seen it from this area. The specimen is most likely to be an erroneous locality or from West Malaysia. Therefore I would like to delete this species from the list until a reliable specimen is rediscovered.

Cirrochroa satellita satellita Butler, 1869
[ LAOS ]
Cirrochroa sattellita f.satellita ; Dubois & Vitalis,1924 : 36. (Xieng-Khouang)
