Type locality

Indonesia: Sumatra.

Remarks

Based on the study of the type from Sumatra, we consider N. sumatrensis   as a junior synonym of N. insignis   , even though the colour pattern of the types of both species is slightly different. After the examination of the material from Sumatra identified “ N. sumatrensis   ” and “ N. insignis   ”, we observed that the colour patterns form a continuum between a lighter version in N. insignis   and the darker, more contrasting specimens previously identified as in the type of N. sumatrensis   . There are also little diagnostic differences in the male and female genitalia for both series.
