Morphology and taxonomic notes on Oxycanus fuliginosa Rothschild from Western Papua, Indonesia (Lepidoptera: Hepialidae)

Grehan, John R.; Mielke, Carlos G.C.; Ignatev, Nikolai; Beaver, Ethan P.

Details of external and genitalic morphology are described and illustrated for three male specimens of Oxycanus fuliginosa (Rothschild, 1915), a central highland species of Western Papua, New Guinea. Distinguishing features are documented for the genitalia and comparisons are made with other related genera. The absence of subanal sclerites in this species is of potential phylogenetic interest, and the tergosternal sclerite shares features with other species of Oxycanus Walker, 1856, and most other Old World oxycanine Hepialidae.
