Chloroclystis rufogrisea Holloway, 1976: 69.

Pasiphila rufogrisea

The forewing and body are tinged rufous-ochreous, the head and thorax most clearly of this colour. The fasciation is somewhat reminiscent of species in Syncosmia Warren, but the colour is distinctive.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species is frequent on G. Kinabalu over a range of 1620m to 2110m. Two specimens have been taken on G. Mulu at 1780m.
