The discovery of a sibling species next to Cyme reticulata Felder, 1861 in New Guinea and a review of some allied taxa (Lepidoptera: Erebidae, Arctiinae, Lithosiini)

Abstract: The species Cyme reticulata Felder, 1861 shows a great variability in New Guinea, and adjacent islands. One of these very common forms appeared to be a new sibling species which is described in this paper: Cyme laeta spec. nov. Four long forgotten allied taxa, described by the authors Rudolf van Eecke and Gustaaf Hulstaert, are compared and treated: Asura roseifusa Hulstaert, 1924a and Asura flavagraphia Van Eecke, 1926 are placed in Cyme (comb.nov.); Asura punctilinea Hulstaert, 1924a syn.nov. and Asura punctilinea aquilonis Hulstaert, 1924b syn.nov. are synonymized with Cyme reticulata Felder, 1861. Of all taxa concerned the adults and genitalia are depicted.
Rangkuman: Spesies Cyme reticulate Felder, 1861 menunjukan variasi yang sangat besar di New Guinea dan kepulauannya. Salah satu bentuk umum spesies ini ternyata dibuktikan sebagai spesies tersendiri dan dideskripsi disini: Cyme laeta spec. nov. Empat taksa berkeluarga yang lama dilupakan dan yang dideskripsi oleh Rudolf van Eecke dan Gustaaf Hulstaert, dibandingkan dan dibahas: Asura roseifusa Hulstaert, 1924a dan Asura flavagraphia Van Eecke, 1926 ditempatkan di Cyme (comb.nov.); Asura punctilinea Hulstaert, 1924a syn.nov. dan Asura punctilinea aquilonis Hulstaert, 1924b syn.nov. disamakan dengan Cyme reticulate Felder, 1861. Dari semua taksa tersebut gambar-gambar bentuk dewasa dan genitalia disajikan.
Keywords: aquilonis, flavagraphia, punctilinea, roseifusa, Papua, Moluccas, new synonyms, new species.
