A worn female (slide 462) may represent a further Monobolodes species,
but the genitalia are atypical of the genus. The wings are dark blackish grey,
the hindwings darker than the forewings and of typical Monobolodes shape.
However, the ductus bursae is unusually and asymmetrically broadened beyond a
short, basal section. Distally the broadened part is coarsely scobinate and
leads, again asymmetrically, into a flimsy, ovate corpus bursae that lacks a
signum. The specimen was taken in lower montane forest at 1000m on G. Mulu.
