Eugoa bipunctata Walker 
   
Lyclene bipunctata Walker, 1862, J. Linn. Soc. (Zool.), 6:115.


Eugoa bipunctata
(x 1.56)


Diagnosis and taxonomic note.
This species commences a sequence of nine with relatively more linear, oblique fasciation and two obliquely set dots in the discal area. The male genitalia do not have any consistently diagnostic features for the group, but the valve costa often has angular processes or is at least more strongly sclerotised. Two species have a shouldered tegumen, and two have dorsally directed processes from the sacculus, so some overlap with the previous group is evident. In bipunctata the fasciae are faint, oblique, more or less straight and parallel, and the hindwings are a cream colour (greyish in the most similar species). The male genitalia have a shouldered tegumen and a cruciform uncus.

Geographical range. Borneo, Singapore.

Habitat preference. The species is rare in lowland forest up to about 600m.
