The Tigermoths (Erebidae, Arctiinae, Lithosiini) of Papua Indonesia

by Rob de Vos

Tigrioides inversa Gaede, 1925

[Tigrioides costaepunctata f. inversa Gaede, 1925] [holotype: Etappenberg, Papua New Guinea, in ZMHB]

 


Distribution

 

 

 

 

STATUS: Gaede described this taxon as a form of costaepunctata but it is probably justified to consider it to be a good species. Specimens of Walmak very much look alike inversa although this should be verified with genitalia research.

PAPUA LOCALITIES: New Guinea: Walmak. Details in gazetteer.

EXTERNAL DISTRIBUTION: Papua New Guinea.

DATA SOURCES: ZMAN, ZMHB. Literature (see below).
