Members of the lithosiine genus Cyana Walker, 1854 belong to the tribe Nudariini (see Holloway, 2001). In Singapore, this genus is represented by at least five species, based on field encounters, museum specimens and published records (Holloway, 2001; Ades & Kendrick, 2004). The species include: Cyana perornata (Walker, 1854) [first described as Bizone perornata], Cyana pudens (Walker, 1862), Cyana determinata (Walker, 1862), Cyana flavalba (Rothschild, 1912), and Cyana alborosea (Walker, 1864…

Pupal metamorphosis of the moth Cyana coccinea (Moore 1878) (Lepidoptera: Erebidae)
ABSTRACT The pupae of Cyana coccinea are described in relation to the principal developmental stages of metamorphosis (ecdysis, pupa, pharate pupa and eclosion). Species identification of the pupae
Cocoon orientation by Cyana moths on lichen-host trees
TLDR
Microhabitat preferences unequivocally showed an inverse thermal sensitivity to that of many temperate Lepidoptera, with caterpillars opting for sites that reduce, rather than maximise, diurnal solar loading.
