Melinaria pseudorepanda -


Vide Seitz original description above, pseudorepanda has violet brown basal spot, which does not decrease in size towards margin but is widely truncate and incurved above v.12. In repanda, the brown spot decreases in size along the costa towards apex. The silvery line is parallel to the margin, while in repanda it converges within the margin towards inner angle. In pseudorepanda, the marginal area is uniformly wide and uniformly dusted with silvery scales. In the centre it is divided into two equal parts by a dark transverse line. Green area is extinct on the underside in pseudorepanda
