Diagnosis.
See the previous species for facies distinctions. The male genitalia have the uncus much narrower apically and with squarer shoulders than in the previous suite of species. The valves are square, the costa slightly concave. The aedeagus has the straight spine much larger than the reflexed one, and the vesica has only one band of spines. The female has the ductus tube shorter than in munda, the ostium set in a transverse oval plate. The bursa is relatively small.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The few records have been from lowland forests.
