Elcysma ziroensis: A new species of Burnet Moth from Arunachal Pradesh, India.

Burnet Moths, Zygaenidae, are large, brightly coloured, day-flying Moths found in tropical and temperate regions. They tend to be slow fliers, but have few predators as their bright colours are a warning, with the Moths storing the distasteful and poisonous compound hydrogen cyanide within their bodies. The genus Elcysma currently contains three described species, one from western China, one from Japan and one from the state of Nagaland in northeastern India.

In a paper published in the Journal of Threatened Taxa on 26 December 2017, Punyo Chada of Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh, Monsoon Jyoti Gogoi of the Bombay Natural History Society, and James Young of the Hong Kong Lepidoptera Society, describe a new species of Elcysma from Arunachal Pradesh.

The new species is named Elcysma ziroensis, in reference to the town of Ziro, meaning 'from Ziro', the species being described from a single female specimen found on the Talle Wildlife Sanctuary, which is roughly 30 km from Ziro. This specimen has a wingspan of 7 cm, and has a cream colour with black markings on the wings, and prominent large red spot on the forewing.

  1. ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . ======== upstartloan@yahoo.com
    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.

  2. Asalamualaikum sahabat seperjuanganku"" sob kalau kerja jadi tkw sangat-sangat lelah" beruntun kalau dapat majikan yang baik.. jangan sampai seperti yang aku alami dulu waktu di singapur. Dapat majikan galak cerewet lagi. salah sedikit kena marah lagi.. tapi aku tidak boleh menyerah demi keluarga yang aku cintai"" yang penting badan ku sehat. kebetulan waktu itu teman ku buka internet di temukan nama mbah Suro beserta dengan nomor Whatsapp nya +6282354640471 di halaman facebook. ternyata beliau orang pintar dan bisa di percaya. awalnya aku sangat takut, penasaran dan takut berdosa sama yang kuasa. tapi apalah boleh buat nasi sudah jadi bubur, aku ceritakan ke adaanku dan dia berikan saran, untuk keluar dari himpitan ekonomi melalui Pesugihan Dana Ghaib ini. Alhamdulillooh bener2 terbukti sama aku. Ku doakan buat sahabat2 seperjuanganku semoga kalian sukses amin...
