Thread: Id conformation for Burara spp

  1. #1

    Default Id conformation for Burara spp

    Requesting confirmation for these Burara spp which I am able to guess, thanks to the ID keys I got from one of the discussion in this forum.

    1. B. harisa? HW orange cilia reaching vein 5.

    2 - 4, B. anadi? I think they satisfy these keys:
    HW discal patch composed of streaks including in space 7.
    HW orange cilia reaching vein 7.
    But they look quite bright. That confuses me.

    Regards

    2, 3, & 4 are fairly typical Burara oedipodea belesis.
    HW patch is solid & placed away from the cellend.

    The orange cilia varies a bit .& especially in different subspecies.

    Burara harisa consobrina P. Malaysia & S. Thailand the HW patch is more obviously streaky.

    B. jaina FW white cellspot may be absent ,HW orange cilia reaching at least v. 7. space 7 usually clear of pale streak. Abdominal end broadly orange.
    This differentiate from B. harisa.
    Additional note; Ssp jaina have a UnF white cellspot. ;Ssp fergusoni (S. India) lacks this spot. UnF apical zone not distinctly paler.
