bipunctata Walker, 1862, J. Linn. Soc. (Zool.),
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,
Habitat preference. The
species is rare in lowland forest up to about 600m.
