Eriopus chlorocroa
Hampson, 1908, Cat. Lepid. Phalaenae Br. Mus., 7: 583.


Eulepa chlorocroa
 


Diagnosis.
See the previous two species. The male genitalia have a corona to the valve, which is broader basally rather than apically, and lacks a clavus on the sacculus. The saccus is broad. The tegumen is only swollen over the ventral two thirds. The aedeagus vesica is more scobinate.

Taxonomic notes. The Himalayan specimen (slide 14204) has the forewings browner, less ochreous than those of Sundanian ones.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, N.E. Himalaya.

Habitat preference. The species is rare but was recorded during the Mulu survey and in Brunei from a range of lowland forest types (alluvial, dipterocarp, kerangas). One female was taken at 1465m on Bukit Retak, Brunei.
