Title :

Dukearbela translucens gen. nov., spec. nov. – a remarkable taxon from South Africa (Lepidoptera: Metarbelidae)

Abstract :

The genus Dukearbela gen. nov. is established to accommodate the species D. translucens spec. nov., collected in KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape Provinces, South Africa. The new species differs externally from other African taxa in that the fore- and hindwings are translucent in the male sex. The wing venation resembles that of the genus Salagena Walker, 1865, but the male genitalia are structurally different. The sister-group is unknown.
