Somena sp. 1730  


Somena sp. 1730


Diagnosis.
A single worn male of a further Somena species was taken in Sarawak at 130m near the western end of the Melinau Gorge on the bank of a river terrace between alluvial forest and wet heath (kerangas) forest. The facies is of the female similis type. The genitalia are typical of Somena: the uncus is broad, not constricted as in similis; the valves are less deeply bifid, the bifurcations more splayed.
