Researchers from Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) have discovered a new species of moth, scientifically named Elcysma Ziroensis from Talley Wildlife Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh.
Elcysma Ziroensis is commonly called Apatani Glory, named after a local tribe called Apatani.
It was discovered at an elevation of 1,700m in Ziro.
This discovery represents the first record of Elcysma from Arunachal Pradesh.
This species has only been seen during autumn, notably in month of September. This indicates that it is univoltine species, meaning it has one brood of young in a year.
