Nola erythrostigmata Hampson, 1894, Fauna Br. India, Moths, 2: 139.
Hampson, 1896, Fauna Br. India, Moths, 4: 505.
Diagnosis. The single Bornean male is worn, but appears to be much paler in
fasciation than typical Himalayan erythrostigmata and lacking the dark
discal mark on the hindwing, resembling liparisalis more closely.
However, the antennae are fasciculate rather than bipectinate, and the genitalia
match those of erythrostigmata, having a longer and more slender harpe
than that of liparisalis and a long, slender, rather hooked cornutus in
the aedeagus vesica. The apodemes of the eighth segment differ also from those
being blunt and with a greater difference between tergite and sternite.
Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Borneo.
Habitat preference. One single specimen is from lower montane forest at
1000m on G. Mulu. The Bornean female noted by Hampson (1900) under
erythrostigmata is of the next species.
