Arthrosphaera  noticeps— Pocock, 1898: 271, plate B, figs 2 - 2 a, (R). Arthrosphaera  noticeps— Attems, 1914 a: 148, (R). Arthrosphaera  noticeps— Attems, 1936: 166, (R).

Records from Sri Lanka. Exact locality unknown ( Butler 1872, 1873; Pocock, 1892, 1898; Attems, 1914 a, 1936; Jeekel, 2001 a).

Distribution. Only known from Sri Lanka.

Remarks. Pocock (1898) noted that the species is very close to Zephronia versicolor  (= Arthrosphaera versicolor  ) in the sinuate inferior border of the nuchal plate, but can be distinguished by the evenly arched anterior edge of the first tergite, and by the different color.
