Orthomorpha coarctata (De Saussure, 1860)  


This pantropical, definitely anthropochore species has often been referred to as a distinct genus, Asiomorpha   Verhoeff, 1939, but we prefer to regard Orthomorpha coarctata   as a species of Orthomorpha   (see Likhitrakarn et al. 2011). In the Philippines, it has been recorded in Mactan and Cebu islands ( Wang 1955).
