Anisodes alienaria Walker, 1862, List Specimens lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus., 26: 1586.

Mesotrophe alienaria

The fasciae are very broad, grey, irregular, running into each other. The species could possibly be confused with Perixera sarawackaria Guenťe, but the fasciation contrasts more with the paler fawn ground colour in the latter, and the underside is paler with much finer fasciation, particularly the postmedial.

Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. No material has been taken in recent surveys. Older material is from lowland localities.
