Notes
The illustrated specimen of Cynitia lepidea flaminia in Monastirskii,2019 is probably a female of Cynitia onoderai. Both species are found sympatric and rather similar. So it is likely that past records includ both species. Reconfirmation by recording with reliable specimens is necessary in the future.
