Host

Kirkaldy (1902) reported Crinum asiaticum   ( Amaryllidaceae   ) as a host in the original description.

Distribution

Sri Lanka.

Remarks

Refer to the Remarks section of T. piceatus   for the discussion of distinctive features. Stonedahl (1988) designated the male as the lectotype of T. sanguinalis   from the collection of the Hungarian Natural History Museum and mentioned that the paralectotype female is apparently deposited in the same collection but that he hadn’t seen the specimen. We found this paralectotype in the collection of the Finnish Museum of Natural History together with three specimens from the same series most probably not seen by Kirkaldy but labelled as types (see material examined).
