Studies on African zygaenoid moths (Lepidoptera: Zygaenoidea). The genus Psycharium Herrich-Schaffer, with descriptions of four new species (Somabrachyidae)






South African Journal of Zoology. October; 334: 210-225

Studies on African zygaenoid moths (Lepidoptera: Zygaenoidea). The genus Psycharium Herrich-Schaffer, with descriptions of four new species (Somabrachyidae)

The genus Psycharium is revised for the first time. Until now, only a drawing of the female type species was known. The male and female of the type species, P. pellucens, and 4 new species, P. montanum sp. nov., P. kammanassiense sp. nov., P. barnardi sp. nov. and P. natalense sp. nov., are (re)described. P. pellucens, P. montanum and P. kammanassiense were found as larvae on the exotic conifer Pinus radiata in Western Cape Province, South Africa.
