Cyana spp.

The genus Cyana consists of 42 species from India (Singh et al. 2020), with possibly more species awaiting description. This gallery of images titled Cyana spp., also contains some species that were traditionally classified as Cyana, but now have been transferred to other genera such as Kailasha, Nephelomilta, etc. In many species of Cyana, it is necessary to see the fore and hindwings of the species for a confirmed identification, which is difficult due to the normal sitting posture of this genus. In some cases, genitalia and/or barcoding are needed to separate species with certainty. If the individuals displayed on this page are identifed to the species level in the future, they will be moved to the respective species pages. We would welcome feedback from experts who are able to provide an insight into species identities. Comments and feedback on the page or specific images can be provided by using the link at the bottom of the page and by quoting the specific media code provided in the image.
