Lundquist’s Spreadwing (Indolestes lundqvisti)

Lundquist’s Spreadwing was described in 1949, it apparently was restricted to what today is the city of Merauke in southern Papua New Guinea.

The species reaches a wingspan of about 4,8 cm; the males have distinctly shaped hindwings.

It is now thought to be possibly extinct.
