Pachythalia rotundata Warren, 1897, Novit. zool., 4: 221.

Cyclophora rotundata

Cyclophora rotundata

The forewings have rather rounded margins, those of the male bearing dense raised scales as in the next species, which is larger. The discal marks in both are short, transverse, dark dashes. The medial fasciation is much broader and more diffuse in rotundata. The dorsum of the male forewing in both species is somewhat bowed, the raised scales tending to be more restricted to the basal area in rotundata, and only weakly developed in Bornean males.

Taxonomic notes. There is a massive pair of coremata between the male genitalia and the eighth segment.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species has been taken infrequently in lowland forest.
