Ptochophyle phlogea Prout,
1938, Gross-Schmett. Erde, 12: 158.
Diagnosis. The species resembles C. dracontias Meyrick in its rather Plutodes-like
wing markings and colour, but has the grey areas more rufous-tinged,
those of the forewing larger, constricting the band of yellow ground
colour more. The apical patch extends right up to the costa and margin.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. Only the holotype female is known, from a locality 85
miles from Pontianak in Kalimantan.
