Notes: This little-known species, Abraxas latizonata Hampson, 1907 and Abraxas poliostrota Hampson, 1907 closely resemble each other. Based on the original description of both these species, our record from Shendurney closely matches A. latizonata, but it has not yet been shown, by dissection of genitalia for example, that both taxa are in fact distinct species.
