Notes. This species is distributed in northern and central Vietnam. Male wings are pale orange colored, but the apices are hyaline. Bodies of male and female are shown in Figure 17a and 17b View FIGURE 17 , respectively. Asahina (1977) noted that male specimens taken in Malaysia and southern Thailand have an entirely pale brownish [sic] HW, but that in Laotian males, the brownish [sic] area of HW is restricted before the pterostigma, although a clear geographical differentiation using this character seems difficult. We also confirmed this difference between Malaysia and Laos. In Vietnam and China, all male specimens examined have a HW similar to that observed in Laotian males ( Fig. 17a View FIGURE 17 ). Male genital ligula has laterally curved flagella typically seen in other Euphaea species, but these are relatively narrow and elongated ( Fig. 17c View FIGURE 17 ).

Distribution. Vietnam (Lai Chau, Yen Bai, Hoa Binh, Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Nam and Kon Tum Provinces), China (Yunnan Province) ( Zhang 2010), Laos (Phongsali, Luang Namtha, Oudomxay, Houaphan, Vientiane and Attapeu Provinces) ( Fraser 1933, Asahina 1977, Yokoi & Mitamura 1995, Yokoi 1999, Yokoi & Souphanthong 2004, 2005, Sasamoto et al. 2009, this study), Thailand (most of the country, except Central Plains and North-east) ( Hämäläinen 2017), Myanmar (Shan and Bago Provinces [ Schmidt 1964], unknown in detail [ Asahina 1970]), Peninsular Malaysia (Johor, Kelantan, Pahang, Penang, Perak, Perlis and Selangor States) ( Lieftinck 1954, Laidlaw 1902, 1903, 1924, 1931, Fraser 1942, Hämäläinen et al. 1996, Kitagawa 1997, Dow et al. 2016), Nepal (Kathmandu Valley) ( Vick 1989), Bangladesh ( Chittagong and Sulhet divisions) ( Khan 2017a), India (Meghalaya [ Lahiri 1987], Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, West Bengal and Mizoram [ Mitra 2002]).
