has been un-available for years. Now, only seen
in older collections or as papered material "long
stowed away" and nearly forgotten !
It is a nice fairly sizeable species which for a time
was probably readily available. However, unsettling
conditions which began appearing in PNG/S.Is. during the
decade of the 1990's all but, finished any entomological
Geographically and tribally, it's part of Solomon Islands.
Still a tough area that has little use for waetfalla (white foreigners.) Bville also has the heat of Solomons with more aggressive terrain and rainfall like PNG. So it's a tough place.
This pair has data from Bougainville Solomon Islands.
Whilst posting my picture of the species I inadvertently glanced at an opposing photograph of PNG data from another species. A mix-up on my part.
