A new paper on the taxonomy of a Seychelles endemic moth, Thalassodes antithetica, has been published by ICS trustee Pat Matyot, co-authored together with his colleagues Ivan Bolotov, Maik Bippus, Vitaly Spitsyn Yulia Kolosova and Alexander Kondakov.
275 endemic species of Lepidoptera have been described from Seychelles yet information regarding endemics is very poor, because the majority are known from a single or a few specimens. This paper is a full redescription of the species with DNA barcoding data and a revision its taxonomic position.
