Barsine complicata Butler comb. n.  
   
Sesapa complicata Butler, 1877, Trans. ent. Soc. London, 1877: 344.


Barsine complicata (x 1.38)


Diagnosis.
The facies, yellow with dark grey fasciation and longitudinal streaking on the forewing, is like that of most Lyclene species. The antemedial is irregularly stepped and runs close to the subbasal, which encloses a sequence of subbasal streaks, more as in Lyclene and other genera in the complex such as Adites and Graptasura Hampson. The hindwing in some specimens has a faint submarginal band or row of dark grey striae.

Taxonomic note. The aedeagus vesica has the coarse spining typical of Barsine; the valve has a central costal process and a distal saccular one.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species is frequent in lowland forest, occurring more rarely in forest up to 1000m.
