1948, Treubia, 19: 466.
Diagnosis. Toxopeus indicated that the forewing is satiny white with undulations in
the gloss, and with orange-buff edging to the costa. No discal spot is
mentioned. The frons and palps are marked with pale bands of colour, bone to
pale fawn. The valve has a much elongated lower half that tapers to its apex,
which is upturned. The harpe is small, club-shaped, armed with numerous teeth,
but without a needle at its end (in comparison with satinata), which lies
just in the middle of the valvular excavations. The uncus is long, projecting,
cylindrical at its end.
Geographical range. Borneo.
