Description

Sugitania sp. near lepida

Noctuidae, Noctuinae, Xylenini

This species is not yet formally identified and differs in a few small markings from S. lepida (from Japan). Only a handful of specimens have been recorded, and this is the first (and only one of two) live photo of this species.

Lam Tsuen Valley, Hong Kong

update (2018-02-09);
finally placed to species using Owada et al., 2010, in their revision of the genus. reloaded the photo with better colour balance, too.
