Explanation of Names
Flataloides scabrosus (Melichar 1902)
The 'spotted' pattern does not occur in this species, and the wings are held flatter and it has a bit of an undulation laterally in the shape of the wing when at rest, whereas Flatoidinus has the edges of the wing more curled under.
--a couple of dark markings on the 'temple' [seen here] appear to be characteristic of Flataloides scabrosus, but I would like to see more specimens of it. --Charles Bartlett, pers.comm. to =v= 6.viii.2015
