Paukstadt, U., Paukstadt, L. H. & Brosch, U. (2000): Taxonomische Änderungen bei den Taxa des larissa-Komplexes (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae: Antheraea). - Entomologische Zeitschrift (Stuttgart), 110 (3): pp. 71-72.

Summary: This contribution to knowledge the wild silkmoths particularly deals with the taxa of the larissa-complex of the subgenus Antheraea Hübner, 1819 ("1816") (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) of the nominotypical genus. Thus far two species and four subspecies, including the nominotypical subspecies, of the larissa-complex are recognized. Those are A. larissa (Westwood, 1847) with its subspecies ridlyi Moore, 1892, rev. stat., n. stat., and A. mindoroensis Brosch & Paukstadt in Paukstadt & Brosch, 1996, rev. stat., with its subspecies philippirissa Treadaway & Nńssig, 1997, n. stat. (the taxonomic status of philippirissa needs further investigation). The taxa of the larissa-complex are distributed from southern Myanmar and Thailand via Peninsular Malaysia to the Greater Sunda Islands (except Sulawesi), with the southeasternmost populations on the island of Bali (first record), and the easternmost on the Philippines known thus far.
