Paukstadt, U. & Paukstadt, L. H. (1990): Beschreibung des bisher unbekannten Männchens von Saturnia (Eriogyna) pinratanai Lampe 1989 aus Thailand (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). - Entomologische Zeitschrift (Essen), 100 (13): pp. 250-252; 2 figs.

Summary: The hithero unknown male adult of Saturnia (Eriogyna) pinratanai Lampe, 1989 (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) is described and figured for the first time. This species is known so far only from Doi Inthanon and Saraburi, Thailand. The male adult and the male genitalia structures are compared to those of Saturnia (Eriogyna) pyretorum pyretorum (Westwood, 1848) from Taiwan and Saturnia (Eriogyna) cameronensis Lemaire, 1979 from Peninsular Malaysia. The male of S. (E.) pinratanai is well distinguished from pyretorum and cameronensis by the falcate apex of forewings, by the strongly darkened coloration of wings and antennae and by differing in some features of the genitalia structures. The male genitalia are the smallest known within the whole subgenus Eriogyna. The preimaginal instars of pinratanai still remain to be studied.
