Revision of the genus Eadmuna Schaus, 1928 (Lepidoptera, Mimallonidae) with a description of a new species from French Guiana.

St Laurent RA, Dombroskie JJ - Zookeys (2015)

Bottom Line: The holotype of Perophorapulverula Schaus, 1896, currently placed in Cicinnus Blanchard, 1852, is determined to be a previously unrecognized female Eadmuna, and is transferred accordingly as Eadmunapulverula comb. n..Eadmunapaloa Schaus, 1933, rev. status, is removed from synonymy with the type species Eadmunaesperans (Schaus, 1905).Eadmunaesperans, Eadmunapaloa, and Eadmunapulverula may be of conservation concern due to their limited extent of occurrence and endemicity to the highly imperiled Brazilian Atlantic forest.

ABSTRACT
The genus Eadmuna Schaus, 1928 is revised to include four species. Eadmunaguianensis sp. n., is described from French Guiana and Guyana. The holotype of Perophorapulverula Schaus, 1896, currently placed in Cicinnus Blanchard, 1852, is determined to be a previously unrecognized female Eadmuna, and is transferred accordingly as Eadmunapulverula comb. n.. Eadmunapaloa Schaus, 1933, rev. status, is removed from synonymy with the type species Eadmunaesperans (Schaus, 1905). Eadmunaesperans, Eadmunapaloa, and Eadmunapulverula may be of conservation concern due to their limited extent of occurrence and endemicity to the highly imperiled Brazilian Atlantic forest.

Mentions: The geographic distribution of the species Eadmunaesperans and Eadmunapaloa, and possibly Eadmunapulverula, very clearly follows the Atlantic coastal rainforest of Brazil (see Figure 18) (IBGE). This biome is of particular conservation interest due to a massive loss of habitat, such that it has been estimated that only approximately 11% of the Brazilian Atlantic forest remains (Ribeiro et al. 2009). The association of these two or three species with this biome, along with the almost complete lack of recent material of these species in any of the visited collections, presents further justification for the conservation of this area of high species richness (Ribeiro et al. 2009).
