Garudinia acornuta (paratype)
(x 1.73)


Diagnosis.
See the previous two species. The forewing bands are possibly a darker brown. Distinctive genitalic features include very much more slender, curved distal spines to the saccular processes, absence of apical spurs to the aedeagus but presence of a small comb of spines at the base of the vesica which is only slightly scobinate more distally.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Java.

Habitat preference. The original material consisted of singletons from hill dipterocarp forest at 150m, dipterocarp forest at 250m on limestone, and lower montane forest at 1000m. Two other males dissected since are from lowland forest, as are several more undissected.
