Calluga punctinervis Holloway comb. n.  
Chloroclystis punctinervis Holloway, 1976: 70.

Calluga punctinervis
(holotype) (x 1.47)

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.
