Satyrinae - 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.


Elymnias hypermnestra beatrice Fruhstorfer,1902
[ THAILAND ]
Elymnias hypermnestra beatrice ; Pendlebury,1923 : 33. (Nakhon Sri Thammarat: Wat Kiriwong)
Elymnias hypermnestra agina ; Pinratana,1988 : 8. not fig. (list only)
"Elymnias hypermnestra agina ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 226, pl.85, figs.S4b♂(Malaysia),♂(Un,Malaysia),♀(Malaysia),♀(Un,Malaysia). (Krabi [loc.err.])"
Elymnias hypermnestra agina ; Uémura,2010 : 1-2. (by literature)
"Elymnias hypermnestra agina ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 226, pl.85, figs.N40b♂(Malaysia),♂(Un,Malaysia),♀(Malaysia),♀(Un,Malaysia). (Krabi [loc.err.])"
Elymnias hypermnestra agina ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 161. (by literature)
>>> Hitherto, It has been known only one record by Pendlebury,1923 from Nakhon Sri Thammarat, P.Thailand.
As mentioned in ssp.tinctoria section, Currently it is found only ssp.tinctoria in peninsular Thailand. it is thought to have been replaced by ssp.tinctoria.

Ethope himachala (Moore,[1858])
[ THAILAND ]
Anadebis himachala ; Godfrey,1927 : 122. (N)
Anadebis himachala ; Godfrey,1930 : 247. (1♂, Apr.1921. Chiang Rai. M.B.Tennent)
Ethope himachala ; Pinratana,1988 : 18. not fig. (list only)
"Ethope himachala ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 258, pl.101, fig.S47,♂(Myanmar),♂(Un)[Up,Myanmar]. (Chiang Rai [loc.err.])"
"Ethope himachala ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 258, pl.101, fig.N82,♂(Myanmar),♂(Un,Myanmar). (Chiang Rai [loc.err.])"
Ethope himachala ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 159. (by literature)
>>> Hitherto, It has been known only Godfrey's record from N.Thailand and is possible to be an incorrect data.
Therefore I would like to delete this species from the list until a reliable specimen is rediscovered.

Coelites nothis adamsoni Moore,1891
[ THAILAND ]
Coelites nothis adamsoni ; Morishita,1979 : 60, pl.13. (N.Thailand near Burma)
Coelites nothis adamsoni ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 290, not fig. (list only)
>>> Hitherto, It has been known only Morishita,1979 record from Thailand and there was no specimen photograph.
Therefore I would like to put this subspecies on hold until a reliable specimen is rediscovered.

Zipaetis scylax Hewitson,[1863]
[ LAOS ]
Zipoetis [sic] saitis f.saitis ; Dubois & Vitalis de Salvaza,1924 : 27. (Ban-San-Savouane; Nong-Lao)
Zipoetis [sic] scyllax [sic] ssp. ; Motono & Negishi,1989 : 65, not fig. (list only)
Zipaetis scylax ; Osada, Uémura & Uehara,1999 : 212, not fig. (list only)
Zipaetis scylax ; Uémura,2005 : 3. (list only)
>>> The records of scylax in Laos are considered to be Zipoetis unipupillata.

Ypthima sakra austeni (Moore,[1892])
[ THAILAND ]
Ypthima sakra austeni ; Pinratana,1988 : 34. not fig. (list only)
>>> The record of Ypthima sakura from Thailand is considered to be a misidentification of other Ypthima species.

Callerebia annada orixa Moore,1872
[ THAILAND ]
Erebia annada orixa ; Godfrey,1932b : 322. (1♂, Pu Wieng, Kawnken, N.E.Siam. 17.Mar.1932. A.F.G.Kerr)
Callerebia annada orixa ; Pinratana,1988 : 36. not fig. (list only)
"Callerebia annada orixa ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 304, pl.125, figs.S109,♀[♂](Un)."
"Callerebia annada orixa ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 304, pl.125, fig.N145,♂(Un)."
[ LAOS ]
Callerebia annada f.ananda ; Dubois & Vitalis de Salvaza,1924 : 28. (Ban-San-Savouane)
Callerebia annada f.hybrida ; Dubois & Vitalis de Salvaza,1924 : 28. (Ban-San-Savouane)
>>> The record of Godfrey,1932 by Dr.Kerr from N.E.Siam is quite doubtful. It is possible to be an incorrect data.
The records of annada from Laos are considered to be a misidentification of suroia.

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.
