The genus Blaviodes Bethune-Baker, 1910 from New Guinea restored and revised, with seven species transferred to this genus and three new species (Lepidoptera: Erebidae, Arctiinae, Lithosiini)

Abstract: The genus Blaviodes Bethune-Baker, 1910 is restored and revised. Seven species are transferred to this originally monotypic genus from New Guinea: Tigrioides approximans Rothschild, 1912, Graphosia phaeocraspis Bethune-Baker, 1908, Tigrioides laniata Hampson, 1914, Tigrioides albogrisea Rothschild, 1912, Scoliacma hampsoni Bethune-Baker, 1904, S. heringi Gaede, 1925 and S. virginea Bethune-Baker, 1908. Tigrioides lactea Rothschild, 1912 syn. nov. is synonymised with Graphosia phaeocraspis Bethune-Baker, 1908, Graphosia reticulata Rothschild, 1912 syn. nov. is synonymised with Graphosia bilineata Hampson, 1900 and Graphosia simplex Rothschild, 1916 syn. nov. is synonymised with Graphosia polylophota Hampson, 1914. Three new species are described: Blaviodes arfakensis spec. nov., B. raanyae spec. nov. and B. schoutenae spec. nov. The genus is compared with six apparently allied genera: Graphosia, Pseudilema, Scoliosia, Tigrioides, Scoliacma and Tylanthes.
The female of Scoliosia brunnescens (Rothschild, 1912) is described for the first time.
Of all treated species the adults and, when available, the genitalia are depicted.
