Nymphalinae - Addendum


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


Symbrenthia hippoclus selangorana Corbet,1948
[ THAILAND ]
Symbrenthia anna selangorana ; Pinratana,1979 : 28, not fig. (List up only)
Symbrenthia hippoclus selangorana ; Pinratana & Eliot,1996 : 31, not fig. (List up only)
Symbrenthia hippoclus selangorana ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 368, pl.158, fig.N32,♂,♂(Un). (Ranong / Than To)
Symbrenthia hippoclus selangorana ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 498, pl.222 fig.N380,♂(Malaysia). (Ranong / Than To)
Symbrenthia hippoclus selangorana ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 55. (by literature)
>>>Symbrenthia hippoclus is distinguishable from lilaea by only examination of the male genitalia.
I examined all specimens from P.Thailand in my collection, these were S.lilaea only. The record of Symbrenthia hippoclus selangorana from Ranong and Than To are considered to be Symbrenthia lilaea luciana. Therefore I would like to pending records for this species until a reliable record confirmed by male genitalia can be found.

Hypolimnas anomala anomala (Wallace,1869)
[ THAILAND ]
Hypolimnas anomala anomala ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 376, pl.162, fig.N45,♂(Malaysia). (Than To)
Hypolimnas anomala anomala ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 506, pl.226, fig.N393,♂(Malaysia). (Than To / Nakhon Si Thammarat)
Hypolimnas anomala anomala ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 62. (by literature)
>>>The specimen illustrated in Ek-Amnuay is from Malaysia and hitherto I have never seen any materials from Thailand.
Therefore I would like to pending records for this species until a reliable record can be found.

Reeves reported the above lists, but his identification was based on Malaysian literature and all species and subspecies names were Malaysian ones. Moreover no specimens were shown in his list. It is considered most of these species and subspceis should be continental ones. However For some species, it is possible that Malaysian species and subspecies are actually distributed which may cause additional confusion. Therefore I omitted all of these records.
