Descriptions of two new Species of the Genus Metadrepana (Drepanidae, Lep.)

  • W. H. T. Tams

Some time ago Mr. T. J. Anderson, Government Entomologist, Kenya Colony, sent to the Imperial Bureau of Entomology several specimens of a Drepanid moth, the larvae of which were defoliating coffee during 1922. The moth, which is described below, proved to be a new one, and I have described at the same time another species from Northern Nigeria, and have given figures of the male genitalia of both species, and of the wing venation (fig. 1) and male genitalia (fig. 2) of the genotype, Metadrepana glauca, Hmpsn.
