Hadena (Xylophasia) runata, n. sp.

Ground colour smoky brown or blackish, varying in shade even to a reddish admixture. Head usually a little reddish, with a black band crossing the front. Collar usually paler at the base, crossed by a black line about the middle; usually tipped with paler scales. Thorax with a distinct divided crest, which often contains an admixture of lighter vestiture, patagiæ with paler tips, a blackish submargin, and a disk as dark as the general ground colour. Primaries powdery, mottled, with all the markings well defined; no contrasts, save that the median space is usually darker than the rest of the wing. Basal line geminate, black, including a few whitish scales, and reaching to a narrow, short basal line which ends at the point of junction with the tranverse marking. T. a. line black, geminate, the outer defining line well marked, the inner vague, except at the interval margin, where an oblique black shade extends inward along the margin.
