Eupithecia obliterata Walker,
1866, List Specimens lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus., 35: 1674.
Diagnosis. This is a small species with grey fasciae on a bone-white ground, the
fasciae similar in course to those of congeners but entire, if irregular in
course, so there is no reticulate effect.
Taxonomic notes. The male genitalia are typical of the genus, with the labides entirely
fused into a blade. The female genitalia are also typical.
Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Siberut I.
Habitat preference. All material is from lowland localities. One specimen
was taken in alluvial forest during the Mulu survey.
