Yanga heathi ( Distant, 1899) 

Platypleura heathi Distant 1899: 475  . ( Madagascar)

Remarks.—The third of four species with the hind wings piceous or piceous-brown. It can be distinguished from Y. antiopa  by the lack of lighter distal apical cells, and from the lack of white apical areas found in Y. brancsiki  and Y. hova  . Body length is 32–38 mm, wingspan is about 97–115 mm ( Distant 1899; specimens in hand).

Distribution.—The species is only known from Madagascar ( Metcalf 1963a; Sanborn 2013). Jacobi (1917) reported the species from Tulear, southwestern Madagascar.
