Chundana lugubris Walker (Part 8, p. 95). Endemic. (Lowland). Note 158. Note 158. A third specimen of Chundana lugubris Walker (noctuid slide 20286) has been located, taken at Bidi in the lowlands of Sarawak. A new species has been located in the form of one specimen from the Semongok locality where one of the previous lugubris specimens was collected, and is described below. Both had been misplaced amongst material of the noctuid genus Metaemene Walker, treated in Part 13.

Chundana metaemenoidessp. n. (p. 319, Plate 6, Fig 91). Endemic. (Lowland). Note 159. Note 159. Chundana metaemenoides sp. n. (Plate 6, Fig 91)

G 7mm. The wing markings consist of pink patches and black dots on a white ground, resembling Metaemene species and lacking the brown suffusion that obscures this in lugubris. The black dots are not linked by any fine black fasciae and are larger than in lugubris, particularly a central subbasal one on the hindwing and three antemedial ones on the forewing; these have a more transverse, slightly angled course. There are several black spots around the forewing margins and marking the position of the postmedial on the costa and the dorsum. The forewing also has a basal spot that is absent in lugubris. The genitalia have the typical saccular spining on the ventral margin of the valve, but there is a single spine only, rather than two, and it is connected to the costa by a transverse ridge, more as in emarginata Hampson. The cucullus of the valve is simple, narrowing to a rounded apex, the costa lacking the lobes or spines seen in Bornean species apart from lugubris. The uncus is slender, single as in emarginata and lugubris, longer than in the latter.
