Abstract

Antigius jinpingi, new species, is described from Taiwan, which Theclini fauna has been investigated extensively. The sister species of the new taxon is presumed to be A. butleri, a species distributed in the Asiatic continent and Japan. The larval host plant of A. jinpingi is unknown, but the most likely candidate is Quercus dentata, a deciduous oak with a relictual distribution in Taiwan.
