species: bruno Bryk (Burma).
Closely allied to Acosmeryx with similar facies and coloration, this genus
has the forewings highly falcate at the apex rather than marginally
excavate; the postmedial fasciae are broader, straighter, more diffuse,
and displaced more strongly at the oblique dark shade.
In the male genitalia (falcata Hayes) the uncus and gnathus are similar to
those of Acosmeryx but the harpe is a prominent simple spine. The two
flexed back arms of the apical process of the aedeagus are slender, one
very much longer than the other.
There are three Oriental species (including obliquifascia Hampson) (Inoue,
1973; D'Abrera, 1986: 132).
