Acicnemis ryukyuana’s distinctive colours and leg shape

Acicnemis ryukyuana (A) can be distinguished by the yellow bands on its shoulders and the colour of its hardened fore wings. The shape of its leg segment (tarsal segment) is also very unique, as it is not strongly indented. In most Acicnemis species the same leg segment is heavily indented and heart shaped (shown here in Acicnemis postica, B).
