Pomasia euryopis Meyrick, 1897, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond., 1897:
Diagnosis. Both sexes have rounder forewing margins and deeper forewings than
congeners. The fasciae are a red on a pale softer yellow. In addition there is a
strong sexual dimorphism in forewing shape with that of the male very much
deeper with venation strikingly modified. The space between anterior cubital and
anal veins is dramatically expanded, with the former concave, somewhat doubled;
the cell itself is constricted basally but expanded distally with consequent
shortening of the radial and medial system. The venation of the female is less
modified, but the anterior cubital system still has more curvature than in other
Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia.
Habitat preference. All Bornean material seen is from Pulo Laut, a low
lying island off the south coast.
