status

 

Subgenus Ophionea Klug, 1821 

Ophionea (Ophionea) indica (Thunberg, 1784) 

Kirschenhofer (1996) lists this species for Hong Kong. It may be that this and O. interstitialis  are being confused. Material: 1 ex. Hong Kong, Tai Lung Farm ( AFCD), 3.ix. 76, on bare, dry mud between rice plants ( AFCD collection, Tai Lung Farm. Collector R. Winney. Determined G.G.Kirby). Biology: Imago found September. Associated with rice. Can be attracted to light, it is fully winged and capable of flight.

Ophionea (Ophionea) interstitialis ( Schmidt-Gbel, 1846) 

Redtenbacher (1867) recorded Ophionea cyanocephala  , a synonym of Ophionea indica (Thunberg, 1764)  from Hong Kong. However Andrews (1924) concluded this identification was incorrect and the specimens were in fact interstitialis  . It may be that this and O. indica  are being confused.

Ophionea (Ophionea) ishii Habu, 1961  .

New record for Hong Kong. The species was previously recorded in Guangdong province. Specimens determined from Habu (1982 a). Material: 1 ex. W.T.L., 23.xi. 14. Biology: Imago found November. Can be attracted to light, it is fully winged and capable of flight.
