Remark. In the original description, Hampson (1897) described male and female, thus, the description is based on syntypes. In order to stabilize the nomenclature, we designate the male specimen deposited in NHMUK and labeled as ‘type’ as lectotype.

Diagnosis. Forewing length is 10.5–11 mm in males and 12.5–13 mm in females. Cyana catorhoda   differs externally from C. peregrina   by its slightly less elongate forewing with slightly narrower transverse lines. In the male genitalia, the valva is slightly narrower than that of C. peregrina   , and the distal diverticulum is much larger and granulated, whereas in C. peregrina   it is smaller and membranous. The female genitalia of C. catorhoda   differ from those of C. peregrina   by their smaller appendix bursae and shorter band-like signum.

Distribution. North and North East India (Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim, West Bengal, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur) ( Singh et al. 2014), Nepal, Myanmar ( Hampson 1900), China ( Hong Kong) ( Walker 1854, as peregrina   ), Thailand ( Černý & Pinratana 2009, as peregrina   ), Cambodia (Candèze 1927; Bayarsaikhan & Bae 2016, as peregrina   ).
