Acronicta (Plataplecta) pulverosa ( Hampson, 1909)  

Acronycta pulverosa Hampson, 1909   , Catalogue of the Lepidoptera Phalaenae   in the British Museum. 8: 91, Pl: 10,

replacement name for pruinosa Leech, 1900   , nec Guenèe, 1852. Synonymy: expergita Draudt, 1937   , syn. n.; pulverosa   taigunensis Hreblay & Ronkay, 1997 (subspecises). Acronycta expergita Draudt, 1937   , Entomologische Rundschau 54(30–32): 382, Pl. IV: 2d. Type material reported:

Wenige Stucke vom Hoeng-Shan (Prov. Hunan) im April 1933 "   .

Material examined. 2 males, Hoeng-shan, Prov. Hunan, 19, 27. vii 1933 H. Höne   ; 1 male, Shanghai, 18.vi 1941 H. Höne   ; 3 females, Amoy, Prov. Fukien , 21.v 1924 H. Höne   ; 1 male, Shantung; 1 female, Linping , pr. Kwangtung 1924 H. Höne   ; 1 male, Amoy, Sudchina , 24. VI 24. H. Höne   .

Notes. We did not find any specimens collected in April 1933 in Hoeng-Shan, corresponding to data in the original description. The addition label "Type verloren" [type lost] is pined under the identification label " Acronicta expergita   ". Apparently the type specimens are lost. However, all examined specimens match well to the original description and illustration by Draudt. We re-identified specimens of Acronycta expergita   (syn. n.) from the collection of ZFMK as conspecific with Acronicta pulverosa   by comparison with the photograph of the holotype and other illustrations of the latter (Sugi 1982; Krusek & Behounek 1998).

Distribution. China (Hebei, Shandong, Shaanxi, Jiangsu, Hunan, Fujiang, Sichuan, Yunnan, Taiwan), Korea, Japan.
