Diagnosis of new genus and new species

Callisatyrus gen.nov.

Type species: Callisatyrus jinguangensis Dong, sp. nov.

Body moderately sized to large. Brown yellow, with green luster. Vertex and frons stronge convex, conical, sharp. Fore wing and hind wing with wide white transverse band in the central part. Eyes smooth, glabrous. Antenna slender long, slightly short than half of fore wing long, rod distinct. Labipalpus long, reaching the posterior margin of the thorax, with hairs in the back. The middle and hind legs claw does not split. Fore wings vein base not swollen, middle cell concave. Hind wing with A2 and A3 anal vein, discoidal cell short, margin wave, The hind wing in between M2 and M3 and Cu1 and Cu2 near end each with an eye spot.

Remarks: This new genus is allied to Neorina Westwood, 1850. The main difference characteristies are shown in Table 1.

Callambulyx yunnanensis Dong, sp. nov. (Figure 3, 4)

Female: Body length 40mm, wingspan 100mm. Wing brown, with small white markings. Head brownish, Front and face light brown. Antennae brown. In two sides of mesostrnum with a brown longitudinal stripes. Abdomen brown. Thorax brown. Frontal margin of fore wing curved, apex slightly short horn, baseline into two black line, middle line into a wide brownish slash line, tan outside, with a black slash line from the central front margin to hind margin of wing, posterior margin concave into wavy, The outer margin and posterior margin strong depression. Base trailing edge and back from base to central blood red. Hind wings shorter, leaf-like, central front slightly sunken, top blunt trailing edge slightly wavy. From the base to the top of the central chamber in the blood red, abaxially grayish brown, from the front to the back edge near the top a central black diagonal line micro bending.

Remarks: The new species and the elm Sphinx Callambulyx tatarinovi (BremeretGrey) is similar, but this kind of length 40 mm, wingspan of 100 mm; the wing trailing edge bending, wavy edge and the trailing edge of the central depression and strong color can be significantly different.
