Eliot,1990 treated fortuatus as a nomen dubium. Then he treated denta as a subspecies of acuta and is intermediate race between acuta acuta and acuta dentata. Kimura et al.,2014 treated dentata as an independent species due to the differences of markings. I follow Kimura and treat this taxon as dentata provisionally, as in the treatment of Evans,1954. However further taxonomic study is needed for acuta complex.
