status

 

Subgenus Baudia Ragusa, 1884 

Badister (Baudia) ishigakiensis Habu 1975 

New record for Hong Kong. These specimens differ significantly from Morita's (1994) redescription of B. (B.) fukiensis Jedlièka 1937  , and Sundukov (2008) description of B. (B.) peltatus Panzer, 1796  , the only two species in the subgenus recorded in China, but agree perfectly with Habu's description and illustrations, including male tarsi and genitalia of this species. It was described from and to date confined to Ishigaki Island, one of the southernmost island of Japan, 1,000 km northeast of Hong Kong, where it was caught by light trap. Interestingly all specimens from Hong Kong are from Lantau Island and all caught by light trap. It would be interesting to find this species on the mainland or whether this is a true island species.
