Bottom Line: Coladenia buchananii separafasciata Xue, Inayoshi & Hu, ssp. n., is discovered from south Jiangxi Province and west Fujian Province, southeast China.External and genital characters of both male and female of this new subspecies are illustrated and described.Coladenia neomaeniata Fan & Wang, 2006, syn. n. is proposed to be a junior synonym of Coladenia maeniata Oberthür, 1896, and the distribution of this species is briefly discussed.

ABSTRACT
The second subspecies of Coladenia buchananii (de Nicéville, 1889), viz. Coladenia buchananii separafasciata Xue, Inayoshi & Hu, ssp. n., is discovered from south Jiangxi Province and west Fujian Province, southeast China. External and genital characters of both male and female of this new subspecies are illustrated and described. Coladenia neomaeniata Fan & Wang, 2006, syn. n. is proposed to be a junior synonym of Coladenia maeniata Oberthür, 1896, and the distribution of this species is briefly discussed.

Mentions: According to Fan and Wang (2006), Coladenianeomaeniata is different from Coladeniamaeniata in having the valva of the male genitalia conspicuously narrowed distally, and the inner edge of the spot in space sc+r1 on hindwing not in line with that of the cell spot. The first author of the present paper examined some specimens from northwest Yunnan which have the same wing pattern as Coladenianeomaeniata, and found that the valva of the male genitalia is bowl-like (Figs 24, 25), and its inner side looks different depending on the angle of view (Figs 26–29): from a certain angle to see, its distal part is narrowed as shown by figure 5 in Fan and Wang (2006) (Fig. 27), but from another view angle, it agrees with the figure provided by Evans (1949) (Fig. 26); besides, figure 6 in Fan and Wang (2006) is the dorsal view of the valva, not later view. Thus, the male genitalia of Coladenianeomaeniata is actually identical to that of Coladeniamaeniata. Moreover, Coladenianeomaeniata is in the distributional range of Coladeniamaeniata (Evans 1949, Fan and Wang 2006), so their difference in the position of the spot in sc+r1 on hindwing should be considered as intraspecific individual variation rather than subspecific differentiation. Such variation also appears in the shape of the spot in space sc on forewing which changes from a tiny dot to a long strip (Fan and Wang 2006, Oberthür 1896) (Fig. 30), and also in the spots in spaces m1 and m2 which may be fully developed (Fig. 31), vestigial (Oberthür 1896) or absent (Fan and Wang 2006). Therefore, Coladenianeomaeniata is treated as a junior synonym of Coladeniamaeniata herein.
