punctinervis Holloway comb. n.
Chloroclystis punctinervis Holloway,
Diagnosis. The ground colour is ochreous fawn, fasciated clearly in dark brown,
particularly strongly on the veins. The postmedials have a clear band of ground
colour distal to them.
Taxonomic notes. This species is transferred tentatively to Calluga, as the male
abdomen has conical octavals as in fasciata, though much smaller. The
facies is not dissimilar, but the postmedials have a single, acute angle. The
male genitalia have hair pencils, but these are not associated with a quadrate
ventral part of the valve (detached with the intersegmental membrane on the
slide). The aedeagus is longer but the vesica lacks cornuti of any size.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The unique holotype is from 2110m on G. Kinabalu.
