Phlogophora triangula
(paratype)


Diagnosis.
This and the next three species are closely related. They resemble emphanes in having the orbicular component of the forewing central 'V' narrow, entirely pale: in all the species described previously it has a darker central component. This species is distinguished by the straight postmedial and antemedial pale boundaries to the dark central medial zone. The dark brown submarginal zone is broad, not conspicuously broken or dentate.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference.
The species is known from two males taken at 1930m on G. Kinabalu.
