status

 

Braunsia bipunctata Enderlein, 1906 

Braunsia bipunctata  Enderlein, 1906: 263; Shenefelt 1970: 371; Bhat and Gupta 1977: 64; Chou and Sharkey 1989: 175; Chen and Yang 2006: 105.

Remarks.

Chou and Sharkey (1989) and Chen and Yang (2006) recorded this Indonesian species from Taiwan and Fujian, respectively, but these specimens may be misidentified. According to the description by Chou and Sharkey (1989) and Chen and Yang (2006) their specimens differ from the Indonesian B. bipunctata  by having a complete and regular basal transverse carina on the propodeum (transverse propodeal carina partly weakly developed and irregular in B. bipunctata  ) and the large stigmal spot of the fore wing connected to a dark brown band below it (without dark band below stigmal spot in B. bipunctata  ). Unfortunately, we did not have access to these specimens and their taxonomic position remains uncertain.

Distribution.

Oriental region. China (Fujian?, Taiwan?); Indonesia ( Yu et al. 2017).
