Tubuca coarctata (H. Milne Edwards, 1852)

World Distribution
Crane (1975: ) - U. coarctata ranges from Sumatra to the Fiji Islands and from northwest Australia to the northern Philippines. It is absent from the Asian mainland. The two subspecies are distributed as follows. U. c. coarctata: Sumatra and other parts of Indonesia; Philippines; parts of western New Guinea; eastern New Guinea; northeast Australia south to Moreton Bay; New Caledonia; Fiji. U. coarctata flammula: northwest Australia and parts of western New Guinea. One male (USNM 19662), labeled "Taihiti," was almost certainly collected elsewhere. Two other locality records are undoubtedly erroneous: Odessa (see p. 55) and near Lissa, in the Adriatic (Stossich, 1877: 190).
