Prout comb. n., stat. rev.
Nanaguna teleoleuca Prout, 1922, Bull. Hill Mus. Witley, 1: 213.
Diagnosis. This species resembles a larger version of breviuscula
with similar modification of the male hindwing, which is slightly more
brown-tinged. The costal section of the forewing postmedial is more concave,
lined paler towards the costa particularly in the female, the pale continuing in
an arc towarads the apex of the wings. In the male genitalia the socii are
slightly shorter and the saccular shield lacks an acute apical process, being
Taxonomic note. The species was treated as a synonym of breviuscula
in Nielsen et al. (1996) but the origin of this synonymy is uncertain (E.D.
Edwards, pers. comm.); it is retained as a good species by Poole (1989).
Geographical range. Seram, Borneo.
Habitat preference. All five Bornean specimens seen are from montane forest,
mostly upper montane: at 1200m and 1500m (2) on the limestone G. Api and at
1790m on G. Mulu during the Mulu survey; at 1618m on Bukit Retak in Brunei.
