Eustrotia  OZARBICA  Hampson, 1910

Catalogue of the Lepidoptera Phalaenae  in the British Museum Vo l. 10. Catalogue of the Noctuidae  in the collection of the British Museum. British Museum (Natural History), London, i –xix, 1–829 [602], pl. CLXVI: fig. 28. Current accepted combination: Pseudozarba ozarbica ( Hampson, 1910)  (see Poole 1989).

Syntypes, male and female, pinned:

Specimen data: Specimen no. 1474: “Syn | Type ” [Round, red-bordered label]. “Belgaum. | Watson Coll. | 97-193. | Aug 96 ”[Printed]. “ 1903 - 19 | 1474 ” [Printed]. Specimen no. 1209: “Syn | Type ” [Round, redbordered label]. “Belgaum. | Watson Coll. | 97-193. | Aug 96 ” [Printed]. “B.M. dupl. | 1912 - 53 | 1209 ” [Printed].

Remarks: These two specimens, donated to RSMAbout RSM by BM(NH) in 1903 & 1912 respectively, are without doubt part of the original syntype series, which included 33 & 3 Ƥ collected by Watson at Belgaum, Madras ( Hampson, 1910). The species is illustrated in colour in Pl. CLXVI: fig. 28 ( Hampson, 1911). Poole (1989) erroneously suggests that the [holo] type is in the BM(NH).
