Orphnebius hauseri EPPELSHEIM, 1895


Orphnebius hauseri EPPELSHEIM, 1895  

M a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: India U t t a r a k h a n d:13, 5 km NW Ghangaria, "valley of flowers", "N30*43.356' E079*85.309'", 3420 m, [date not indicated, probably VI.2011], leg. Shavrin (cAss).

C o m m e n t: Confirmed records of O. hauseri   were previously known only from Himachal Pradesh and Nepal ( ASSING 2009). Previous records from China and Taiwan ( PACE 2010, 2012) and even some from Nepal ( PACE 1992) are undoubtedly based on misidentified material (see ASSING 2006a, the section on O. jumlaicus   , and the description of O. formosanus   ).
