Brief Summary

The life history has been discussed in detail by Igarashi (2003).


According to Riley, who described the species in 1939, the type specimen was discovered by M. J. Mansfield among papered and unlabeled specimens from the collection of George Forrest, a British botanist who extensively collected in Yunnan, China. Riley therefore assumed that the type must have been collected in Yunnan. Morphological characters are discussed by Saigusa and Lee (1982) and Igarashi (2003), as well as Collins and Morris (1985). Genitalia have been illustrated by Chou (1992) and by Bai and Wang (1998).
