Toxopeus comb. n.
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.
