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.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, Philippines,
Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen seen was from mangrove in
