Cyclophora scriptata

This and the next species have a similar pale yellow ground colour with regularly curved postmedials and 'B' shaped markings discally on the wings. These are smaller in scriptata, a smaller insect overall, and the forewing postmedial is not angled distad near the costa.

Taxonomic notes. Only females of scriptata have been seen, and only males of the next species. Conspecificity cannot be ruled out.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. No recently collected material has been seen. Older material (three specimens) is from lowland localities.
