Notes: This species belongs to the Syntypistis parcevirens group. Provisionally identified as Syntypistis sporadochlorus (Bryk, 1949) by A. Schintlmeister (pers. comm. Sanjay Sondhi). Syntypistis sporadochlorus was previously considered a junior synonym of S. parcevirens (Schintlmeister 2008). The two species are best separated by examining male genitalia.
Distribution: India: Arunachal Pradesh (Tale WLS). Elsewhere: N. Myanmar (Schintlmeister, 2008). Neither S. parcevirens nor S. sporadochlorus have been listed in the Indian Notodontidae catalogue (Chandra et al., 2018). While S. sporadochlorus is recorded from N. Myanmar, both species occur sympatrically in Vietnam as per by A. Schintlmeister (pers. comm. Sanjay Sondhi).
