and taxonomic note. This
species is only represented by females. It has a browner forewing facies, and
the discal dot is relatively more anterior than in congeners. The holotype has a
damaged abdomen and the only other specimen has lost this part. The fragments
remaining of the holotype genitalia indicate the ductus is long and slender as
in flava, but the bursa is much more
coarsely and extensively scobinate.
two specimens are merely labelled ‘Sarawak’, but the probability is that
this is a lowland species.
