Paukstadt, U. & Suhardjono, Y. R. (1992): Cricula hayatiae n. sp., eine neue Saturniidae (Lepidoptera) von Flores, Indonesien. - Entomologische Zeitschrift (Essen), 102 (14): pp. 253-258; 4 figs.

Summary: A new species of the genus Cricula Walker, 1855 (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) is described from the island Flores, Indonesia: Cricula hayatiae sp. nov. Thus far this new species is known only from Ruteng, 600 - 1820 m altitude, Flores, district Manggarai, province Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), Eastern Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia. Cricula hayatiae sp. nov. is well distinguished from C. trifenestrata javana Watson, 1913 (Peninsular Malaysia, Kalimantan, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok [status remains undetermined] and Flores; first record for the island of Flores [recte: the populations from Flores belong to Cricula trifenestrata tenggarensis Paukstadt, Paukstadt & Suhardjono, 1998]), C. trifenestrata kransi Jurriaanse & Lindemans, 1920 (Sulawesi), C. trifenestrata serama Nässig, 1989 (Seram and Buru), C. sumatrensis Jordan, 1939 (Sumatra), C. elaezia Jordan, 1909 (Peninsular Malaysia, Kalimantan, Sumatra, Java and Bali) and other taxa, by the wing coloration and pattern and mainly by differing in some features of the male genitalia structures. In the male C. hayatiae sp. nov. the vesica of the aedeagus is with four cornuti and the valvae are small with long costal lobes. C. hayatiae sp. nov. is a highly variable moth, male specimens with up to fife fenestra in forewings. This paper illustrates the male holotype and its genitalia structures, the female paratype, the cocoon and the pupa. C. hayatiae sp. nov. is on the wing from October to March during the rainy season. Hostplants on which eggs and cocoons were found are avocado (Persea americana, Lauraceae) and jambu klutuk (Psidium guajava, Myrtaceae). The larvae instars still remain unknown. C. hayatiae sp. nov. represents a species of the andrei - group.
