Amphitorna perexcisa

The antennae of this and the next species are broadly bipectinate in both sexes, and the hooking of the hindwing margin and forewing postmedial is less extreme than in excisa, that of the postmedial rather more quadrate in the next species, a slightly paler, browner insect. The facies of perexcisa is more purplish on the upperside and reddish rather than ochreous yellow on the underside, but the two species can only reliably be distinguished from the genitalia.

Geographical range. Sundaland.

Habitat preference.
Only two Bornean specimens have been seen, males from Samarinda in the lowlands of Kalimantan and from 1618m on Bukit Retak in Brunei.
