Actual Epipedocera lunata NEWMAN 1842 from Luzon.

Epipedocera sp.

A new Epipedocera species collected in Mindanao

I received an email from Eduard Vives that the supposed upcoming new species Epipedocera kalingana, collected in Kalinga province in Luzon, is actually E. lunata NEWMAN 1842. This after he verified the actual type specimen as well as the original description. The species has not been indicated as occuring in the Philippines in previous publications and thus is a new range for the species.

The previously labelled E. lunata is a new species which will be described soon in an upcoming paper. These male and female were collected in Mindanao.
