  1. Looks an awful lot like a Panchlora sp.
    P.S. This one comes close

    The "new to science" bit is quite questionable, but it's a good start for search direction

    1. I've been looking into identification of Planchora spp from the region and will have to come up inconclusive I'm afraid. There are a few species with ringed antennae and the little black spots on the tegmina and the descriptions I have for those will not allow an ID from photo. Also, some (old) publications claim that the annulated antennae and spotted wings are not constant characters within a species to begin with, giving rise to even more candidates. Lots of contradictory and questionable remarks in all the publications available to me (some 30?). I think that short of having the specimen under a microscope and endeavouring to do a full revision of the genus any name calling will be wishful thinking :-/ Posted 6 months ago
      1. Thanks for your efforts, Arp! Sorry that I didn't respond to your first try earlier, it slipped through. Posted 6 months ago
