Euphaea superba Kimmins, 1936

Euphaea superba: Kimmins (1936) , pp. 147–149, Figs 1–3 View FIGURE1 View FIGURE 2 View FIGURE3 [Holotype male (at the British Museum of Natural History) from ‘Tonkin’ (purchased from H. Fruhstorfer)]; van Tol & Rozendaal (1995), p. 100 [Male specimen (at the National Museum of Natural History, Leiden) from ‘W. Tonkin, H. Fruhstorfer, ex coll. Förster’]; Do & Dang (2007), p. 130 [Included in species list as species without detailed locality data].

Materials examined. No material available to the authors.

Notes. A large sized, brownish winged species, somewhat resembling Euphaea opaca Selys, 1853 . According to M. Hämäläinen (in litt.) there is also one male specimen of Euphaea superba from ‘Tonkin’ (without further details) at NRS Stockholm. The specimen originates from Coll. F. Ris, and includes his identification label ‘ Euphaea spec. nov. ’ It is possible that this specimen was also purchased from Hans Fruhstorfer. Obviously this is a very rare species in northern Vietnam. According to information received from Haomiao Zhang and M. Hämäläinen (in litt.), in China Euphaea superba occurs in Guangxi and Guizhou; the published E. superba records from Guangdong and Hong Kong (cf. Wilson & Zaifu 2007) refer to E. opaca .
