Blenina puloa Swinhoe, 1902, Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (7), 9: 130.
Diagnosis. This is the smallest Bornean species, shades of brownish grey
with the forewing markings typical of the genus. The hindwing, however, is
relatively uniform medium brownish grey above and with a weakly darker border
below. In the male genitalia the valves are paddle-like, lacking the strong
costal and saccular processes seen in congeners.
Geographical range. Philippines, Talaut I., Sulawesi, Borneo, Taiwan.
Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen is from Pulo Laut, a low-lying
island at the southeast of Borneo.
