Eulepa gilvithorax


Diagnosis
. The forewings are dark brown, with white markings as in typical Eulepa though the central spot of the four is enlarged, displaced slightly basally, and the other three are reduced, the posterior one sometimes absent.

Taxonomic notes
. The forewing facies and male genitalia show all the diagnostic features of Eulepa so the species is transferred to that genus.

Geographical range
. Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference
. Bornean material is restricted to two males taken at 1620m and 1660m on G. Kinabalu.
