status

 

Ropalidia binghami van der Vecht, 1941 

Icaria sumatrae  ; Bingham, 1897: 387 (misidentification).

Ropalidia binghami  van der Vecht, 1941: 113. Type locality: Thailand (Siam).

Ropalidia binghami binghami  ; van der Vecht 1962: 8.

Ropalidia sumatrae sumatrae  ; Lee 1982: 88, 1985: 50.

Specimens examined.

1 ♀, Luang Prabang, Hat Thoun, Siam, 10. xi.1917, RV De Salvaza (holotype, BMNH) 1♂, Mergui, Tenasserim, May 1890, CT Bingham (allotype, BMNH. "This specimen bears a label in Bingham’s handwriting: " Icaria cotonata  White ♀").

Remarks.

No specimens from China were available, but this species is included in the key because it has been listed for China by Lee (1982, 1985) as Ropalidia (Anthreneida) sumatrae sumatrae  (Weber). Considering the description and illustration of Lee (1982, 1985), we agree with Kojima and Carpenter (1997) and Kojima (2006) that it most likely concerns Ropalidia binghami  van der Vecht, 1941.

Distribution.

China (Guangdong); Myanmar; Thailand. ( Kojima and Carpenter 1997 and updated to 2006, Lee 1982, 1985).
