Artema atlanta Walckenaer, 1837 

Notes. For synonymy, redescription, and distribution, see Aharon et al. (2017: 8). This large species has been present in Sri Lanka for a long time but very few records exist. It was first reported from Sri Lanka by Karsch (1891) (Jaffna, 9.67°N, 80.02°E) and Pocock (1900) (Trincomali, 8.59°N, 81.2°E). The only other reports do not give locality data: Strand (1907) just gives “ Ceylon ”, Saaristo (2001) “ Sri Lanka ”. Saaristo’s (2001) specimen was reexamined (a juvenile in ZMUT AA 3385); it was collected in Negombo [~ 7.2°N, 79.85°E] (24–26.xi.1973, M. Senaratne & J. Haapasaan leg.).
