Gatzara Navás, 1915 

Gatzara Navás 1915: 386  . Type species: Gatzara jubilaea Navás  ; by original designation and monotypy. Gatsara: Zoological record (Insecta) 1918: 193 (misspelling). Synonymized by Stange 2004: 90.

Distribution. India, Japan, Vietnam, China.

Diagnosis. Bifurcation of Rs opposite to or before cubital fork on wings; costal area simple with several furcate crossveins, especially near stigma; surrounding stigma with many black spots; stigma white; anterior Banks line of forewing distinct. Tibia spurs straight and slender, reach to about apex of the 2 nd tarsomere. Female: 9 thinterior gonapophysis with sparse short black digging setae, 9 th-external gonapophysis present; 8 th-interior gonapophysis as long as or longer than 8 th-external gonapophysis, at least 8 th-interior gonapophysis longer than 2 / 3 of 8 th-external gonapophysis. Male: pilula axillaris present.

Remarks. The elongate 8 th-interior gonapophysis of Gatzara  is shared with Nepsalus Navás, 1914  . Stange (2003) mentioned ‘The outstanding identification character of Nepsalus  is the wing shape, the forewing is strongly emarginate on the posterior margin whereas the hindwing is greatly expanded somewhat beyond the middle.’ The wing shape of Gatzara  is not so highly modified.
