Olepa sp. Arctiidae, was discovered in the last two years in Thailand. These is the first record of the genus in Thailand and maybe it’s would be a new species, genital morphology and mtDNA sequence analysis a necessary. The most species of the genus will be found in India, Assam, Sri Lanka and one species in Israel.
In August 2009, I see my first male of Olepa sp. in cultivated lowland of Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasima province. In November of the same year I could find some final instars caterpillars of the species also and after 2 weeks the caterpillars will be pupated, but only 2 from about 30 pupae the moth will be hatched the rest of them a parasitized. These 2 moths hatched after diapauses of about 6 months on May 2010. After them, I don’t see the species for more then one year. But this year in August 2011, I see the next male of the species.
