Euphranta klugii (Wiedemann) 

( Fig. 56View FIGURES 53 – 56. 53 – 55)

Material examined: Holotype Ƥ, INDIA: labelled ‘ Dacus klugii Indian  / Type’ (UZMC); 1 Ƥ, INDONESIA: Java, Batavia, 9.iii. 1934, Rev L.B. Cross, at light on boat (OUMNH).

Comments: This species was transferred from Callistomyia Bezzi  to Euphranta  by Hancock (2007) but its identity has remained uncertain. Examination of the holotype ( Fig. 54View FIGURES 53 – 56. 53 – 55) has shown it to be a senior synonym of the mangrove-breeding Euphranta signatifacies Hardy  (syn. nov.), known previously from southern Thailand and West Malaysia and newly recorded from Java. The type was presumably collected in a mangrove habitat in the Kolkata district of West Bengal; its recorded host plants are Avicennia officinalis  L. ( Verbenaceae  ) and Rhizophora mucronata  L. ( Rhizophoraceae  ) (Hancock and Drew, 1994).
