dc.description.abstract "Variation of color pattern and scutellation of Lipinia noctua (Lesson) is described, with emphasis on populations of the New Guinea region. The considerable individual and geographic variation seen in L. noctua and the less extensive, aprtly nonconcordant variation in scutellation are not readily resolved into a pattern of geographic subspecies. Hence, L. noctua is considered to be monotypic species. Lipinia miota (Boulenger) and L. rouxi (Hediger) are referred to the synonymy of L. noctua. Attention is directed to the relative uniformity of color pattern and scutellation of L. noctua over the Pacific Islands, in contrast to the diversity in the much smaller New Guinea region. A key to the five species of Lipinia in New Guinea is included together with notes on distribution and ecology"--P. [1]. en_US
