Discussion

Remarks. I could not find any significant difference between the present species and A. (A.) monilis (Linnaeus) reported from Europe (Roback 1959: 128, Fittkau 1962: 437, Pinder 1978: 30 as adults; Fittkau 1962: 437, Langton 1984: 46 as pupae; and Laville 1971: 188, Rieradevall and Brooks 2001: 92, Vallenduuk & Pillot 2007: 74 as larvae) and North America (Roback 1959: 128, 1971: 375 as adults, Roback 1985: 185 as pupae and larvae; and Epler 2001: 4.22 as larvae). Tokunaga (1937) described Pentaneura monilis based on many adult specimens collected from Kyoto, Wakayama, Tottori and Tokushima, Japan. It appears that his P. monilis series may, in fact, consist of two or possibly three species including A. (A.) monilis, A. (A.) prorasha and A. (A.) jogancornua, judging from his drawing of the wing with three dark spots along the costal margin (Tokunaga 1937, fig. 66). The critical form of the aedeagal complex was not included in his figure 80 of the hypopygium. Twenty-six specimens used in his description still exist in the Kyushu University Museum (Tadauchi and Yamamoto, pers. comm.), although their conditions have considerably deteriorated over the long-term storage in alcohol. Fittkau (1962) erected Ablabesmyia moniliformis as a new species for Tokunaga’s P. monilis. However he had not provided a diagnostic description, nor made reference to one, nor designated a holotype, but yet the proposed name satisfies the provisions of Article 13.1. 2 of the Code and thus is considered as a nomen dubium.
