Xyleutes euphyes


Diagnosis.
The forewings are pale grey, very finely striated with darker grey, more intensely basally and medially. The hindwings are pale grey with striae that are only very faint.

Taxonomic notes. Further material of kalisi from Sulawesi in the BMNH indicates that the features of distinction noted by Roepke are unreliable, therefore it is placed as a synonym of euphyes.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, Philippines, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen seen was from mangrove in Brunei.
