To briefly summarise, features of the African Pacycerina that are immediately striking include: (1) tiny ocellar setulae ('ausserordentlich klein' [extraordinarily small] in Becker's (1895: 250) words), (2) incurved anterior fronto-orbital bristles (reclinate in most Afrotropical lauxaniids, except Chaetolauxania Kertesz), (3) bulging prefrons and lateral black spots (other Afrotropical lauxaniid genera lack such a tumid prefrons and maculation), (4) elongated postpedicel, (5) two acrostrichal bristle rows on mesoscutum, (6) no profemoral ctenidium, (7) usually dark brown protibia and protarsi (relative to yellow meso- and metatibiae and tarsi), (8) the presence of paired black spots on T6 in some species, and (9) the absence of an aedeagus in the male of all species.

strigipennis in wing maculation but clearly different in the genitalia, was collected at Nanling National Nature Reserve in Guangdong province, South China, and adjacent areas.
Abdomen dorsum dark brown to black with two short longitudinal pale marks anteriorly, followed by two pairs of transverse marks, and 2-3 transverse bands posteriorly; venter light brown with dark median maculation. Legs light brown with dark annulations, anterior femora and tibia dark brown, coxae light brown.
Moreover, maculation patterns and shape and size of the genal processes were different from the reported type in most of the collected specimens (Fig.
The following morphological characters distinguish this genus from Crocanthes and its allies: 1) both wings brightly colored with similar maculation, especially with a large deep orange patch medially, 2) forewing with [R.sub.2] connate or short-stalked with R3+4, 3) flagellum of the antenna uniquely specialized with long scales along posterior margin, except in the apical part, sometimes appressed or short rough scales on anterior margin, 4) labial palpus with third segment very slender, longer than second segment, and 5) male genitalia with variable shaped valva and elongated juxta.
One of them, Crocanthes pancala (Turner), known to Australia as an endemic species, has a more typical wing pattern with the similarly variegated maculation on both wings (Figs.
