mjobergi Talbot comb. n.
Agylla mjobergi Talbot,
1926, Sarawak Mus.
J., 3(2): 133.
Holloway, 1976: 2.
of the forewing into pale and grey halves in the two previous species is absent
from this one, but the costa is more narrowly delineated with orange. The male
hindwing has the costal zone below broadly suffused with black, and there is a
hint of this also on the upperside.
species lacks the costal comb of spines in the male genitalia, but has the
pocket of the saccus containing two coremata with hairs more extensive. The
aedeagus vesica is relatively smaller but with much longer cornuti: one large
one distally, separated from a row of many more less robust ones that become
more slender with passage basad along the row. The female bursa is typical of
the genus. H. haighti Wileman &
South comb. n. (Philippines) is similar in facies but has a longer
aedeagus with fewer more slender cornuti in the vesica.
species is common from about 1600m to 1930m, but occurs with less frequency
outside this range from 1000m to 2200m.
