garthei Kobes comb. n.
garthei Kobes, 1989, Heterocera Sumatrana, 2: 154.
bubo Hübner sensu Holloway, 1976: 34, partim.
Diagnosis. The species is
similar to bubo but slightly more delicate. Differences from bubo include: a
distinctly paler, irregular submarginal fascia in a more uniform submarginal
zone; a definite convexity to the distal border of the hieroglyph at its hook;
a slightly concave distal border to the antemedial black patch, that is then
angled obtusely more anteriorly where it grades to brown.
note. A. olivacea Prout (Seram) shares some of these features and is
closely related as discussed under bubo above. The genitalia of garthei and olivacea are very
similar, and those of the latter are illustrated in Fig 103.
range. Nias, Sumatra, Borneo, N.E. India.
preference. Bornean material is limited to a male from the Telupid area of
Sabah (in FRC, Sepilok) and a female from 1930m on G. Kinabalu.
