Paukstadt, U., Paukstadt, L. H. & Brosch, U. (1998): Taxonomische Änderungen und Anmerkungen zu den Taxa der Gattung Antheraea Hübner [1819] von Sumatera, Indonesien (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). - Entomologische Zeitschrift (Essen), 108 (8): pp. 317-324.

Summary: In this contribution to knowledge the taxa of the genus Antheraea Hübner 1819 ("1816") (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) from Sumatra, Indonesia taxonomic changes and discussions are presented. A. sumatrana Niepelt, 1926, rev. stat., is released from synonymy and considered to be the correct name for A. gschwandneri Niepelt, 1918 ([part.] sensu Nässig et al. 1996a, b). From Sumatra and the adjacent smaller islands are 13 taxa of the genus Antheraea and the total number of 26 taxa of the family Saturniidae known thus far, plus one taxon of the genus Antheraea from the Mentawai Islands (description in preparation by Nässig, pers. comm.) [remarks: this taxon was later described under the name Antheraea mentawai Nässig, Lampe & Kager in Nässig, 2002]. A. (A.) youngi Watson, 1915, rev. stat. is considered a distinct species and no subspecies of A. castanea Jordan, 1910. A. youngi and A. castanea are members of different species-groups of the subgenus Antheraeopsis Wood-Mason, 1886, those are the youngi-group and the castanea-group respectively. The spelling roylii is considered to be the correct original spelling and the spelling roylei an incorrect subsequent spelling for A. roylii Moore, 1859. We consider the subsequent designation of the female lectotype of korintjiana Bouvier, 1928 by Nässig & Holloway (1989) being no valid designation because a male [lecto]type was already designated by Bouvier in the Corrigenda of the original description (valid subsequent designation), cf. ICZN (1985) Art. 74(a)(i). The Sundanian A. lampei Nässig & Holloway, 1989 is recorded from Ranong, southern Thailand for the first time. Thus far Ranong is the northernmost range of A. lampei on the Southeast Asian Continent. Presently 34 taxa of the family Saturniidae are known from Thailand, plus a new taxon of the genus Samia Hübner, 1819 ("1816"), which is described by Naumann & Peigler (pers. comm. Naumann).
