Diduga annutata Hampson  
   
Diduga annulata Hampson, 1900, Cat. Lepid. Phalaenae Br. Mus., 2: 539.


Diduga annutata
(x 1.63)


Diagnosis.
This is one of the paler brown species with dark brown fasciae, the postmedial irregularly but strongly sinuous, and strong stigmata, the reniform a small circle. The male antennae are bipectinate.

Taxonomic note. The genitalia resemble those of the holotype except the aedeagus is shorter. In the abdomen, the apodemes of the eighth tergite are well separate rather than fused in a Y and there are conspicuous hair pencils on the intersegmental membrane that were not noted in the holotype. Further material is needed to assess the conspecificity of the Bornean population with that from Sumbawa.

Geographical range. Sumbawa, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Both Bornean specimens are male from about 1600m on G. Kinabalu.
