Across the world, natural-history collections hold thousands of species awaiting identification. In fact, researchers today find many more novel animals and plants by sifting through decades-old specimens than they do by surveying tropical forests and remote landscapes. An estimated three-quarters of newly named mammal species are already part of a natural-history collection at the time they are identified. They sometimes sit unrecognised for a century or longer, hidden in drawers, half-forgotten in jars, misidentified, unlabelled.” Museums: The endangered dead (C. Kemp, Nature 518 (7539): 292–294, London, 19th February 2015)A new subspecies of Nacaduba cyanea (Cramer, 1775), N. c. sanane ssp. n., from the Indonesian island of Buru is described and illustrated. It is compared with nominotypical cyanea (TL: “West-Indiën” [= West Indies]; recte: “Oost-Indiën” [= East Indies]) and N. c. obiana (Fruhstorfer, 1915) (TL: Obi). All eight currently recognised Moluccan subspecies of N. cyanea, including N. c. sanane ssp. n., are illustrated and a map depicting their distribution in the Moluccas is presented.
