Notes

The figured specimen in Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 is from N.E.Putao, Kachin State, Myanmar and the locality of 'Doi Pha Hom Pok' is incorrect. The record in Thailand has been known only one male at Phu Phing palace, Doi Suthep from insect dealer by Miyata & Hanafusa,1994 until now. I suspect it might be an erroneous data.
