Summary: This contribution particularly deals with the distribution of some taxa of the wild silkmoths (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). Archaeoattacus edwardsii (White, 1859) is recorded for the first time from N-Vietnam [recte: in the meantime an older record for this taxon from Vietnam was found being present]. Attacus atlas (Linnaeus, 1758) is recorded from the island of Sumbawa, Nusa Tenggara Barat Province, Western Lesser Sunda Islands [remarks: most likely the specimens before the authors were mislabeled, because no further specimens of this taxon were collected on the island of Sumbawa; Attacus inopinatus Jurriaanse & Lindemans, 1920 most likely is the only taxon of the genus Attacus Linnaeus, 1767, which inhabits the island of Sumbawa], Cricula trifenestrata (Helfer, 1837) is recorded from the island of Sumba, Nusa Tenggara Timur Province, Eastern Lesser Sunda Islands [remarks: this populations were described under the new subspecific name C. trif. tenggarensis U. Paukstadt, L. H. Paukstadt & Suhardjono, 1998], Samia insularis Vollenhoven, 1862 is recorded from the island of Bunguran, Natuna Archipelago, South China Sea and from the island of Bali, Bali Province, Western Lesser Sunda Islands [remarks: the populations from Bali were later considered representing a new species: Samia abrerai Naumann & Peigler, 2001], and Samia tetrica (Rebel, 1923) [the taxonomic status of S. tetrica from Peninsular Malaysia and the island of Borneo remains to be determined] is recorded from the island of Lombok, Nusa Tenggara Barat Province, Western Lesser Sunda Islands [remarks: till late 2002 no further specimens of the genus Samia were collected on the island of Lombok and therefore the specimens labeled S. tetrica from Lombok are considered being mislabeled], Indonesia.
