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

Geertsema H. (1998)


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 Herrich-Schäffer, and four new species, montanum, kammanassiense, bamardi and natalense, are comprehensively described. A key to the species of Psycharium, based on males and females (except for P. natalense where only males are known), is given. Descriptions of taxa include drawings of their genitalia.
