I have this as Niphona hepaticolor (Heller, 1923) which has been recorded from Borneo, Philippines and many other places by Breuning. We know that Breuning made mistakes. The question here is: Did he make a mistake by recording a species from various places, or did he describe albosignatipennis after it was already described by Heller as hepaticolor?

Strange, by looking to the holotype of Niphona hepaticolor (Heller, 1923) presented on Larry's website; and which has been described from Philippines (Mindanao).

My apologies, I meant Niphona plagifera (Aurivillius, 1925).

But, I still believe that N. albosignatipennis may be a synonym of this species!!
