Orientafroinsularis elenae ( Boulard, 2001)  n. comb.

Chremistica elenae madagascariensis Boulard 2001: 134  . (Dry forest of Ampijora, Madagascar)

Remarks.—As outlined above, Chremistica elenae  was considered to have been described simultaneously with the subspecies Chremistica elenae madagascariensis  . The specimens, description and drawings used by Boulard (2001) to distinguish Chremistica elenae madagascariensis  are applied here to Orientafroinsularis elenae  n. comb.

A species described as uniformly castaneous marked with tawny. It is the second smallest Madagascar species in the genus with a body length of 24 mm and a wingspan of 66.2 mm ( Boulard 2001). The size and coloration quickly distinguish it from the remaining species of the genus in Madagascar. The song begins as a constant buzzing becoming a series of rapid syllables with peak frequency about 10 kHz ( Boulard 2001).

Distribution.—The species is known only from Madagascar ( Metcalf 1963a; Sanborn 2013). The species is only known from the type locality of the dry forest of Ampijora, Madagascar ( Boulard 2001).
