Distribution. India (Karnataka, Maharashtra) ( HEBERDEY 1934, KEJVAL 1999).

Remarks. The specimen from ZMUC bears the identification label ‘ Formicomus apoderinus   ’ by Telnov. This species was described by WASMANN (1898) from a single, probably female specimen collected in the Indian state of Gujarat. As I already mentioned ( KEJVAL 1999), it may be identical with Anthelephila praetor parvicollis   . However, its true identity has never been revised and remains uncertain.
