Leucoma impressa Snellen, 1877, Tijdschr. Ent., 20: 8.
Diagnosis. This is the larger of the two lowland species and is distinguished from
all congeners when fresh by the oblique bands of scale compression and elevation
on the forewing parallel to the margin. The labial palps, forelegs and tarsal
sections of the other legs are dull orange. The labial palps protrude beyond the
white scales of the frons.
Geographical range. Sundaland.
Habitat preference. The species has been taken infrequently in a wide
range of lowland forest types, including swamp forest.
