Notes on Nemophora in Vietnam, with description of a new species (Lepidoptera: Adelidae).

T. Hirowatari


Nemophora tanakai n. sp., which is a close relative of N. fluorites (Meyrick, 1907), is described from Tam Dao, Vietnam. N. fluorites is also recorded from Vietnam and Myanmar for the first time and given descriptive notes. Nemotois takamukuella Matsumura, 1932, which was described based on a single male from "Japan," is synonymized with N. fluorites (Meyrick). The former was considered to be erroneously recorded from Japan.
