f10_01: Wing venation of Pseudohampsonella erlangasp. n.; 10 — forewing; 11 — hindwing. High quality figures are available online.

Mentions: During ongoing Southeast Asian Limacodidae research, three new species that cannot be attributed to any known limacodid genus because of the modified external and genital characters (Figures 1–5, 10–23) were recognized. Externally, these species somewhat resemble some species of Hampsonella Dyar, 1898 (type-species: Parasa dentata Hampson, 1893) (Figures 6, 7), Caissa Hering, 1931 (type-species: C. caissa Hering, 1931) (Figure 8), and PseudocaissaSolovyev & Witt, 2009 (type-species: P. apiataSolovyev & Witt, 2009) (Figure 9), but morphologically are quite different from all of them, showing a high level of morphological modifications that cannot be associated with any limacodid genus, so a new genus is proposed for them here.
