Colophorina vittata ( Crawford, 1912) 

Distribution. Bangladesh ( Mathur 1975), as Euphalerus vittatus  ); India: Tamil Nadu ( Kandasamy & Thenmozhi 1985, as Euphalerus marginalis  ; Kandasami 1986, as Euphalerus marginalis  ), West Bengal ( Mathur 1975, as Euphalerus vittatus  ), Uttarakhand ( Mathur 1975, as Euphalerus vittatus  ); Nepal (3 ♂, Terai districts (Narayani, Janapur and Sagarmatha), Kathmandu to Hile, various stops in villages along the way, 26‒27.v.2001, Cassia fistula (D. Burckhardt) #2a(1); 3 ♂, 3 ♀, same but Kosi, Akibunkyabeshi, local name Baireni, 27°12’N / 87°15’E, to Shawa Khola, 27°17’N / 87°13’E, 300‒400 m, 31.v.2001, farmland with various trees and shrubs, Cassia fistula #6(1) [ NHMBAbout NHMB, dry mounted]).

Host plant. Cassia fistula, C. marginata  ( Fabaceae  ).

Comments. Kandasamy and Thenmozhi (1985) and Kandasamy (1986) reported Euphalerus marginalis Capener, 1973  from Tamil Nadu. The description by Kandasamy (1986) leaves no doubt that this is a misidentification of Colophorina vittata ( Crawford, 1912)  , a species which was previously reported from India ( Mathur 1975). This is supported by the host plant listed by Kandasamy (1986) as Cassia marginata  ( Fabaceae  ). Euphalerus marginalis  is an Afrotropical species which develops on Burkea africana  ( Fabaceae  ).
