- May 10, 2013Hi Alka,I have read lots of different reports about Samia cynthia status, complicated by the fact that it has been introduced in many countries as well.Ian/Roger-would you be able to shed any light on this issue? Is the species in this email Samia canningii? And what is the status of S. cynthia in terms of its distribution in Asia?ThanksOn 09-May-13, at 4:30 PM, Alka Vaidya wrote:According to Pittaway cynthia is found in india.AlkaFrom: Sanjay Sondhi <sanjay.sondhi1@...>

Subject: [Indianmoths] Samia canningii from PakkeHello folks,Here is a lovely Saturnid from Pakke, recorded during my visit last week.30 April 2103Pakke Tiger Reserve, Arunachal PradeshAltitude: 170 mThree individuals came to the moth screen between 730 and 10 pm.I assume this is Samia canningii, but would look for inputs from folks on this email whether this is correct. I assume Samia cynthia is not found in India, but I also understand that this genus is undergoing revision.
