Chapter Summary

This chapter presents taxonomic notes, diagnosis, bionomics and distribution of species: Cerura vinula, Neocerura multifasciata, Kamalia tattakana, Furcula tibetana and Neoharpyia verbasci. Cerura vinula shows great individual and geographical variation in the male genitalia. The coloration of the adults ranges from whitish to black, often mixed with yellow scales and the markings of the forewings are sometimes very weakly developed. In other cases the basal area of the forewings is prominent dark greyish filled. Kamalia tattakana is a large species, which is characterized by its shiny white forewings and the whitish hindwings. The hindwings are more whitish than in the other congeners. Furcula tibetana is closely related to furcula. The species can be recognised by broader shaped forewings, and the straight and thick, blackish postbasal fascia. Neoharpyia verbasci is a distinct marked species on the splendid white forewings. The bluish-black pattern is often enriched by many orange scales.

Keywords: Cerura vinula; Furcula tibetana; Kamalia tattakana; Neocerura multifasciata; Neoharpyia verbasci
