Ziridava asterota Prout
    Ziridava asterota Prout, 1958, Bull. Br. Mus. nat. Hist. (Ent.), 6: 437.

Ziridava asterota (holotype)

Diagnosis. The dark markings along the forewing costa and general colouration are as in rufinigra, but the postmedial fasciae are more apparent, that of the forewing straight rather than irregular. The hindwing marginal zone lacks any solid black areas but there are black spots that are more frequent towards the tornus, and these occur similarly on the forewing.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species is only known from the holotype, taken on G. Kinabalu by Waterstradt. It lacks altitude data.
