Dismorphia hippotas diana 

( Plate 8 View Figure , Fig. 25).

The egg is 1140 µm long and 524.4 µm wide; it is 2.17 times longer than wide and the width/length ratio is 1/2; the maximum diameter is at the equator (Nh= 1). The egg is elongated citriform; the base is convex and smooth, 2.5 times wider than the obtuse apex and rounded cusp. It presents 46 to 51 ribs that extend from the base to the cusp; they are alternate between axes and keep up intercostal spaces of constant amplitude, except in the apical area (are extended) and basal (are conspicuously reduced). The curved and diagonal ribs are restricted to the apical area. They show 10 axes (LoA= 6 and ShA= 4). These are 2.5 times thicker than the ribs; the LoA are projected after the first basal rib. The ShA are separated from the cusp by 3 or 4 ribs. The grid is made up of elongated rectangles that at the equator are 6.6 times longer than wide and are reduced in amplitude and size at the poles. Roughness is absent in the chorion. The eggs are asymmetric. Formula: 6L4C (2LCLCLC2LC). Color N0 0A20M0 0.
