Streptoperas luteata Hampson,
1895, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond., 1895: 289.
Diagnosis. The two species in Streptoperas are very similar in appearance.
The shape of the hindwing, with the margin smooth convex anterior to the angle
and shallowly concave posterior to it, and the multiple crenulate fasciation on
pale yellow between the postmedial and the margin are diagnostic for luteata.
Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Sulawesi.
Habitat preference. Of the only two Bornean specimens seen, one is
without altitude data, collected by Waterstradt in the Kinabalu area, and the
other is from lowland forest at 75m near Labi in Brunei.
