Enantia albania albania 

( Plate 6 View Figure , Fig. 6).

The egg is 1171.5 µm long and 415 µm wide; it is 2.84 times longer than wide and their width/length ratio is 1/3; the maximum diameter is at half its length; marked thinning and conspicuous neck formation in the first basal fifth (Nh= 16). The egg is elongated obpyriform and its apex and cusp are slightly obtuse and flat, the base is convex with a multiple-polygonal grid, more visible than in E. limnorina  , almost 1.5 times wider than the cusp; the neck is defined, narrow and long. There are between 30 and 35 ribs, on average 31, generally straight; curved and diagonal ribs are restricted to 2 or 3 in the apical area and some more in the basal part; almost all of them are alternate, although some are coincident between the axes; from the second apical rib they form intercostal spaces of equal amplitude (2.7 times more broad than long at the equator), which are reduced in the basal area –at the beginning of the neck– and become disorganized at the base forming a grid with irregular polygons. They show 12 to 14 axes (LoA= 7 to 8 and ShA= 4 to 7); these are straight, laminar in appearance and a little thicker than the ribs. The ShA are separated from the micropylar area by 1 to 5 ribs, usually 3. The chorion is asymmetric. Conspicuous roughness with backlight.
