Diagnosis. The general appearance is as in Toxoproctis dyssema (See
Toxoproctis dyssema), but
the forewings are a more ochre-yellow, particularly towards the dorsum, and lack
a sinuous, pale postmedial fascia. The male genitalia are distinctive as
discussed in the next section.
Taxonomic notes. The male genitalia are not particularly consistent in features with
those described for the genus, except for the aedeagus vesica spining. The
valves are irregularly triangular but not cleft at all. The uncus is
distinctive, with constricted sides, and possibly not homologous with the
structures seen in the other species. The male paratype collected by Guichard
and the concept of this species in Schintlmeister (1994) relate to (See
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The three males from G. Kinabalu taken in 1965 in
the original description were from 1200m, 1500m and 1620m.
