Craneophora ficki  Christoph, 1881: 2; Janse 1931: 439-491; Inoue 1982: 379, pl. 45, fig. 40; Yamanaka and Yoshiyashu 1992: 91.

Belenopholis striata  Butler, 1889: 90, pl. 134, f. 3.

Lista ficki  (Christoph): Solis 1992: 283.

Diagnosis.

The species is different from congeners by paler scales on the forewing, the tip of the gnathos without denticulation, and the juxta swollen, the apex bifurcated with two pointed processes.

Material examined.

Guangdong: Dinghushan, 1♀, 7.VII.1973, Li Tiesheng. Jiangxi: Jiulianshan, 1♂, 23.IX.1979, Song Shimei. Hubei: Shennongjia, 3♂♂1♀, 950-1250m, 3-16.VII.1980, Yu Peiyu & Han Yinheng (gen. slide no. Ep552); Xingshan, 1♂3♀♀, 1350m, 18.VII.1993, Song Shimei (gen. slide no. Ep532). Gansu: Wenxian, 1♀, 720m, 28.VII.1999, Yao Jian; Zhouqu, 1♀, 2400m, 14.VII.1999, Zhu Chaodong.

Distribution.

China (Heilongjiang, Gansu, Hubei, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Guangxi); India, Japan, Philippines.

Remarks.

Yamanaka (2000) reported this species in Nepal. However, according to the related literature, the genitalia are quite different from those of Lista ficki  (Christoph, 1881) provided by Janse (1931). Meanwhile, their structure of the male genitalia matches the figure of Lista haraldusalis  (Walker, 1859) provided by Marumo (1942). Therefore, his reported species actually is Lista haraldusalis  (Walker, 1859) rather than Lista ficki  (Christoph, 1881).
