A Brief Introduction
Mesorhynchaglaea tarokoensis represents one of the two Mesorhynchaglaea spcies and an endemic species to Taiwan up to date. Although wing markings of the two Mesorhynchaglaea members are so similar that genitalia comparison is necessary to identify them, M. tarokoensis shares similar wing pattern with no species in Taiwan.
