46. Pseudandraca flavamaculata (Yang, 1995)  ( FIGURES 26View FIGURE 26 A – 26 B)

Andraca flavamaculata Yang, 1995  , Insects of Baishanzu mountain, eastern China: 354, figs. 3, 8. TL: “Zhejiang, China [Mt. Baishanzu, 1100 m]”. Holotype: male (said in the original description to be in collection of the Beijing Agricultural University, but has not been found there.)

Andraca nabesan Kishida & Owada, 2002  , Spec. Bull. Jpn. Soc. Coleopterol. (5): 464; Huang & Wang, 2004, Entomotaxonomia 26 (1): 47. TL: “ Vietnam, Cao Bang, Cao Bang”. Holotype: male ( NSMT) [examined]. Synonymized by Zolotuhin & Witt (2009).

Diagnosis. The species can be distinguished from the other Pseudandraca  species endemic to Japan based on the external characters that are unique to the Chinese bombycid species by forewing with the contrasting citrus-yellow spots in R-Cu cell especially distinct, and the valva with a strong sharpened basal inner process.
