2.1. Genitalien

Hinweis: Fazekas & Edmunds (2023: 28-29) zeigen Farbfotos der Falter und Genitalien beider Geschlechter. Sie erläutern dazu: "Remarks. According to Arenberger (1996) due to the extremely poor state of preservation of all specimens examined, a more exact description of the external characteristics of this species is not possible. However, there is no doubt about the species legitimacy of Agdistis bigoti because the genital apparatus in both sexes is unmistakable. The male genital is very conspicuous by the forked process of the 8th sternite. Only Singularia walsinghami (Fernald, 1898) and Agdistis bifurcatus (Agenjo, 1952) have similar sternite cones, but in both these are forked after 1/2 of their length. In A. bigoti, from the base of two arms, a further two arms are present. A. bigoti is another species of the „frankeniae” group. This is confirmed by their female genital apparatus. Antrum in ventral view caudally overly broad, orally tapering abruptly after 3/4 abruptly tapering, strongly sclerotized. The membranous corpus bursae are only about 1/4 longer than the antrum. In the paper, detailed photos of the male and female reproductive organs are shown. Highlighting the most important specific markers. The wing habitus is also shown, as no similar representation is known in previous publications."
