Diagnosis and taxonomic
note. The sexual dimorphism in this
large, pale orange-yellow species is not pronounced (the male has the costa
folded over and fringed with hair-scales), and the male abdomen is typical of
the genus. There is no structure on the third tergite, and the costal structure
of the valve is appressed, apically reflexed and scobinate. The saccular process
is large. The aedeagus vesica has two sclerotised plates, one with a few short
spines. The female genitalia have only one signum, and the ductus is sclerotised,
extending in a funnel-like manner into the bursa.
Geographical range. Sumatra,
Java, Bali, Borneo, Philippines, Sangihe.
