A NEW RECORD OF ACTIAS RHODOPNEUMA RÖBER, 1925 FROM CENTRAL LAOS (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae)

The genus Actias Leach, 1815 contains ca. 20–25 species (Nässig & Treadaway 1998; S. Naumann pers. com.) widespread in North and Central America, SW Europe and Asia. At present, the African genus Argema Wallengren, 1858 is considered as a distinct genus (see Nässig & Treadaway 1998). The genus Actias may be divided in six species-groups (S. Naumann pers. com.).

Actias rhodopneuma is known from India, China, Burma and Thailand (Pinratana & Lampe 1990). This species is here reported for the first time for central Laos, from two male specimens from Luang Prabang, 2000 m, VI. 1997.

Acknowledgements:  Special thanks are due to Dr. S. Naumann for useful information.
