species: bipuncta Hampson, India.
Phaneropseustis Turner (type species albida
Walker, Australia). The wings are somewhat narrower than in other diaphanous
genera, and the diffuse orange marking of the forewing forms definite antemedial
and postmedial fasciae in many species, the postmedial angled basad subcostally
and subdorsally. There may be black dots in the forewing cell, though this is
rare in Bornean species. The forewing has all radial sector veins present, with
(R2, R3) and (R4, R5) independently stalked (Fig 5f); there are small veinlets
between Sc and the costa.

In the male abdomen, all Bornean species share with the Javan fulvia
Hampson (also Bali) the presence of small eversible coremata laterally on
the third sternite. The male genitalia have the uncus short, diversely modified
and lobed; the aedeagus is slender, variably flexed, the vesica small, sometimes
finely scobinate The juxta is prominent, somewhat flask-like. In the female
genitalia there is a characteristic
semicircular flexure in the ductus distal to the junction of the ductus
seminalis. The bursa lacks a definite signum, but may have a field of short
spines (e.g. albida Walker). The genus
ranges throughout the IndoAustralian tropics east to New Caledonia (Holloway,
1979), but the corematous group appears to be restricted to Sundaland, and has
seven species in Borneo.
