Remarks: In general, the tegmen of G. tessellatus   is black with 10 green marks (faded to a yellow colour in dried specimens), arranged 1, 3, 4, 2 from base to apex by original description, but in our examination, the body colour and marks on the tegmen of some specimens have great variation: the tegmen may be black with some yellow spots joined with each other ( Figs. 65, 66 View FIGURES 65 – 73 ), or the black tegmen may only have scattered yellow spots ( Figs. 68, 69 View FIGURES 65 – 73 ), or the body may be dark brown with irregular stripes on the tegmen ( Figs. 71, 72 View FIGURES 65 – 73 ). All of specimens examined have the same male genital characters except the features described above. We treat them as the same species here.
