Trapezia lutea Castro, 1997


Trapezia lutea Castro, 1997  *

( Fig. 4BView FIGURE 4)

Material examined. 1 male (12.6 x 10.8 mm) ( DABFUK), Bitra, 13 May 2015  .

Remarks. Trapezia lutea  is superficially similar to Trapezia cymodoce (Herbst, 1801)  and many old records of the latter species will need to be checked (see Castro 1997). Both species have a wide Indo-West Pacific distribution and can occur together in the same reef. Trapezia lutea  is recorded for the first time from India.
