Summary: Antheraea (Antheraea) ulrichbroschi sp. nov., a new wild silkmoth from Peninsular Malaysia (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). - A new species of the genus Antheraea Hübner, 1819 ("1816") is described from Peninsular Malaysia: Antheraea (Antheraea) ulrichbroschi sp. nov. The new species represents a taxon of the subgenus Antheraea Hübner, 1819 ("1816") and is a member of the frithi-subgroup (sensu Nässig 1991) of the mylitta/frithi-group (sensu U. Paukstadt, Brosch & L. H. Paukstadt 1999). A. ulrichbroschi sp. nov. is known from the lower areas of the highlands of Peninsular Malaysia only. A singleton from North Borneo might belong to the same species but is excluded from type material. Altitudinal records of specimens from the Cameron Highlands are from between 600 and 1400 m and 750 m from North Borneo. The male of A. ulrichbroschi sp. nov. and the male genitalia structures are described, figured and compared to those of the closely related A. jana (Stoll, 1782) from the islands of Java and Bali, A. frithi Moore, 1859 from Myanmar and Thailand, A. semperi C. & R. Felder, 1861 from the Philippines, A. gschwandneri Niepelt, 1918 and A. sumatrana Niepelt, 1926 from Sumatra, and A. myanmarensis Paukstadt, Paukstadt & Brosch, 1998 [remarks: presently treated being a junior synonym of A. gschwandneri] from South Myanmar and South Thailand. The preimaginal instars and the female of A. ulrichbroschi sp. nov. remain unknow. The new species is clearly distinguishable from other closely related taxa of the frithi-subgroup by the size of the male antennae, shape of the forewing apices and the wing ocelli. In A. ulrichbroschi sp. nov. the forewing apices are shorter and the wings less falcate than in A. gschwandneri and A. myanmarensis, the ocelli are much smaller than in A. frithi and usually without hyaline center as in A. platessa Rothschild, 1903, and the male antennae are clearly smaller than in A. sumatrana and A. jana. The new species is distinct in the male genitalia from the closely related and probably sympatric A. frithi from Myanmar and Peninsular Malaysia.
