oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new name for Amphiphalera nigripuncta Kiriakoff, 1979 (Lepidoptera: Notodontidae)

Volume 54, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Kiriakoff (1979) descriptionbed Amphiphalera nigripuncta on a holotype male from Kalinzu Forest, Uganda. Previously (Kiriakoff 1975), he had descriptionbed the 'neallotype female' of this taxon from Savane Forest, Mozambique. This earlier descriptionption appears to be valid under the rules of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature and the descriptionption of A. nigripuncta therefore should date from 1975.
