Streptopteras [sic] crenelata Swinhoe, 1902, Trans.
ent. Soc. Lond., 1902: 590.
Diagnosis. The facies, particularly the forewing shape and fasciation is similar to
that of luteata, but crenelata has uniform darker grey hindwing,
the margin scalloped on either side of the central angle and with white beading
along the medial.
Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia.
Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen seen is the holotype, a
female from Pulo Laut.
Biology. H. Steiner (in litt.) has reared the species from the palm, Pinanga
scortechinii, in Peninsular Malaysia. A cast larval skin has scoli as in
other genera of the palm-feeding complex.
