Diagnosis and taxonomic note. The original material consists of a worn
female (in BMNH, not UM, Oxford as indicated by Poole (1989)) lacking an
abdomen. The forewing is pale grey-brown with a faint, irregular submarginal, a
sinuous, double postmedial, the inner component fainter, and an angled
antemedial with a quadrate dark mark distally adjacent to it on the costa and a
more triangular one distally between it and the postmedial, both marks with
scales slightly raised. It is unlikely that the specimen should be associated
Swinhoe and quadrimaculata
Heylaerts as in Hampson (1900: 13); the postmedial of internella lacks
the strong subdorsal flexure seen in all specimens of that complex, which also
Wileman & West. No material taken in recent surveys appears comparable
with it (the next species is probably not the male because of the facies
differences indicated), so the identity of the species is unclear. See also the
original description of analis (Wileman & West, 1928).
The holotype was taken in Sarawak, probably in the lowlands, by A.R.
