Parnara ranrunna Sonan, 1936 

Zephyrus 6: 215.

Label: “ Parnara  / ranrunna Sonan  / DET. J. SONAN,” “ Ranrun/ 10 III 1926 / S. Isshiki,” “ No. 67,” “ Type [in red].”

A single male specimen was designated as the holotype by Sonan (1936), and the holotype was retrieved from TARI ( Fig. 25–27View FIGURES 19 – 39). Evans (1949) synonymized this taxon with Caltoris bromus yanuca Fruhstorfer, 1911  . However, his treatment was not followed by most subsequent authors (e. g. Shirôzu 1960; Hamano 1986; Chiba et al. 1992), who retained it as a distinct Caltoris  species. Yamanaka (1980), citing an unpublished idea from Hiroshi Tsukiyama, regarded this taxon as a junior synonym of Caltoris cahira austeni (Moore, 1884)  . This viewpoint was endorsed by Hsu and Wang (2005), and accepted by the present study.
