Anepholcia pygaria Warren;
Holloway, 1976: 32.
Diagnosis. The mottled, bronzy brown forewings and the yellow hindwings with a dark
brown border render this species unmistakable.
Taxonomic note. A. talboti has a more gently curved harpe, distinctive spined
lobes on the ‘shoulders’ of the tegumen, and a short, rhomboidal uncus.
Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.
Habitat preference. The species is primarily montane and has been taken
frequently at altitudes from 1000m to 2100m (lower to upper montane forest) on
G. Kinabalu, G. Mulu and Bukit Retak. However, three specimens have been taken
at 300m in hill dipterocarp forest in the Ulu Temburong, Brunei.
