Paukstadt, U. & Paukstadt, L. H. (1992): Beschreibung des bisher unbekannten Männchens von Actias groenendaeli Roepke 1954, n. stat., von Flores, Indonesien (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). - Entomologische Zeitschrift (Essen), 102 (11): pp. 193-197; 3 figs.

Summary: The hithero unknown male adult of Actias groenendaeli Roepke, 1954 stat. nov. (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) from the island of Flores, Eastern Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia is described and figured. The imagines and the structure of the male genitalia are compared with those of Actias isis (Sonthonnax, 1899) from Sulawesi and Actias maenas (Doubleday, 1847) from the Greater Sunda Islands and Bali. The male of A. groenendaeli is well distinguished from isis and maenas by the shape, pattern and coloration of wings and by differing in some features of the male genitalia. A. groenendaeli is considered being a good species. The preimaginal instars of groenendaeli still remain to be studied.
