Abstract

Pantoporia venilia (Linnaeus, 1758), endemic to the Australian region, was reviewed by examining the male and female genitalia and comparing them with those of other Neptina genera (Lasippa, Neptis, Phaedyma, Aldania) recognized by Eliot (1969). P. venilia proved to have remarkable peculiarities in the morphology of adults in addition to the morphological and food plant differences of immature stages reported by Igarashi & Fukuda (1997). Based on these, it is concluded that this species should be classified not into the genus Pantoporia but into Acca Hubner, 1819, a genus independent from Pantoporia.
