  • 1 Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology, NAS of Ukraine, vul. B. Khmelnytskogo, 15, Kyiv, 01601 Ukraine

Herina arjunae Kameneva, sp. n. from mountain grasslands on volcano Arjuna (at 2000 m a. s. l.) is described and figured. It is closely related to H. orientalis (Schiner, 1868) in the very similar position of crossveins on the wing, structure of female aculeus and spermathecae, but differing by its well-developed wing pattern with brown subbasal and apical bands, and with crossvein dm-cu brown emarginated (lacking in H. orientalis). Diagnosis and key to species of Herina orientalis group are provided.
