Diagnosis. This species is as large as diluta but with the forewings
fasciated in dull greenish brown and grey. The antemedial and postmedial are
diffuse but never as broad as in plesiogramma (see above) which also has
more distinct grey banding.
The above synonymy is based on forewing facies
similarity. The paratype of
Warren (see below) from Penang is also referable to notodontina. Bornean
material has the fasciae more clearly defined and more broadly separated by the
medial zone; it is associated tentatively
Geographical range. Java, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia; ?Borneo.
Habitat preference. All five Bornean specimens are from 1465m to 1618m on
Bukit Retak in Brunei.
