- Pekarsky, O., 2012. A new species of Schrankia Hübner, 1825 from China (Lepidoptera, Erebidae, Hypenodinae). ZooKeys, 242, pp.43-50.
Note: The genus Schrankia Hübner, 1825 and its sister genus, Luceria Walker, 1859 are known from the Asiatic region. Poole (1989) placed the S. Asian species in Luceria but Pekarsky (2012) continued to place this in Schrankia, which we have followed. This species was provisionally identified as Schrankia aurantilineata (Hampson, 1896), but due to insufficient evidence, was identified reliably to the generic level only. Schrankia bilineata Galsworthy, 1997 is very similar to Schrankia aurantilineata (Hampson, 1896) and might be a synonym.
