Abstract:

"Here, we report on the first record of the genus Eupterote Hübner, [1820] (Lepidoptera: Eupterotidae) from Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. This moth represents the new species Eupterote elisavetae sp. nov. that is described here. Previously, two endemic eupterotid species, i.e. Ganisa floresiaca Nässig, 2009 and Pseudojana floresina Nässig & Bouyer, 2010, were known to occur on the Flores Island."
