Abstract

エダシャク亜科のMenophra属には,旧北区とインド・マレー地域から多くの種が知られているが,これまでフィリピン諸島からは未知であった.本報では,ルソン島から1新種を記載した.雄交尾器にcoremataが発達している点で,インドのM.retractaria(MOORE)や日本のM.senilis(BUTLER)ウスクモエダシャクなどの種群とは異質である.CoremataはサラワクのM.delineata(WALKER)やその近縁種によく発達しているが,密生した毛は軟らかく脱落しにくいのに対し,本種では強壮で解剖時に容易に脱落する.

The geometrid genus Menophra includes many species inhabiting the Palaearctic and Indo-Malayan regions. However, no species of the genus have hitherto been recorded from the Philippines. In this paper I will describe one new species from North Luzon, mainly based on the material collected by Dr. M. OWADA, who visited the Philippines in 1985 as a member of the Overseas Scientific Research project of the National Science Museum (Nat. Hist.). Before going further, I wish to express my cordial thanks to Dr. Mamoru OWADA, the National Science Museum (Nat. Hist.), Tokyo, who gave me a good opportunity to study part of the Geometridae from the Philippines, and also to Dr. Hiroshi INOUE, Otsuma Women's University, who gave me much invaluable advice in the course of my study and read the manuscript of this paper.
