Calinaginae - Addendum

The following species were recorded from the Indo-Chinese region in previous publications, however were omitted from the list for the reasons written below.

Calinaga avalokita Fruhstorfer, 1914
Calinaga avalokita Fruhstorfer,1914 : in Seitz, Grossschmett Erde 9:705. TL. Siam.
Calinaga buddha avalokita ; Godfrey,1930 : 299. (N)
Calinaga buddha avalokita ; Pinratana,1979 : 92. (by Godfrey,1930)
Calinaga buddha avalokita ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 138. (by literature)
The species was described by Fruhstorfer in Seitz,1914 based on the specimen from "Siam". According to the original description, it has no ocherous marking on the uph and seems very close to buddha. However, It has not been rediscovered in Thailand since then and I suspect the type locality might be incorrect. Therefore, I would like to delete this species from the list until a reliable sample is discovered.
