Redoa salebrosa Toxopeus, 1948, Treubia, 19: 462.

Diagnosis.
The wings are thinly scaled, with a small black discal spot on the forewing. The frons has a brown bar with two spots of this colour ventral to it. The legs are spotted, the palps light red-brown. The genitalia are compared with the Javan A. galanthina Toxopeus comb. n. where the valve is a bilobed oval, the upper lobe bent slightly inward, the harpe flat, pennant-shaped, with a serrate upper edge and terminating in a long, sharp needle that does not protrude beyond the edge of the valve. In salebrosa the upper lobe is large, rounded, turned further inward. The harpe is spiny all over, with its apical needle protruding beyond the edge of the valve.

Geographical range. Borneo.
