Pomasia obliterata
(x 1.33)

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.
