rotunda Holloway stat. n.
Anuga multiplicans rotunda Holloway,
Diagnosis. The rounded forewings distinguish this species from kobesi as
does the doubled pair of coremata on the male eighth sternite. In the male
genitalia the saccus apex is bulbous.
Taxonomic notes. The taxon is obviously not a subspecies of multiplicans as the
sister-species of the latter has been identified as indigofera, sympatric

suggesting a sister-relationship.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The holotype was taken in a cultivated area at about
1000m on G. Kinabalu, but all other specimens seen have been taken in lowland
