marginata Warren comb. rev.
Chrysocraspeda marginata Warren,
1897, Novit. zool, 4: 392.
grey versus dark-stippled fawn bicoloured zoning of the wings is diagnostic.
Taxonomic notes. The
genitalia of a Himalayan male are illustrated. One Bornean specimen is male but
has lost its abdomen. In the female there are more definite pouches laterally on
the seventh segment, and the ductus is somewhat shorter. The Bornean population
may therefore be distinct.
Habitat preference. Three specimens have been taken in primary forest at
Danum Valley Field Centre, Sabah (one in Herbulot colln).
