scientific name

Yanga pulverea ( Distant, 1882 )
status

 

Yanga pulverea ( Distant, 1882) 

Platypleura pulverea Distant 1882: 335  . ( Madagascar)

Remarks.—With Y. argyrea  rev. stat. being removed as a subspecies, the nominotypical species is no longer to be listed as a subspecies. The hyaline hind wings distinguish this species from all other species of Yanga  except Y. argyea  rev. stat. The larger body size, lack of silver-gray marking on the fore wing and the obliquely rounded lateral male opercula of Y. pulverea  distinguish it from Y. argyrea  rev. stat. The body length is about 31–37 mm and wingspan is about 94–105 mm ( Distant 1882).

Distribution.—The species is only known from Madagascar including Nosy Be ( Metcalf 1963a; Sanborn 2013).

Material examined.—“ Madagascar / Tananarive // LeMoult” one male (AFSC).
