Derambila propages Prout,
1926, Sarawak Mus. J. 3:170.
Diagnosis. This and the next two species are rather similar in size and fades. They
are easily distinguished on genitalic features (see illustrations). D.
dentiscripta has one of the central elements of the otherwise sinuous
forewing postmedial displaced out of line distad. In D. lumenaria there
are prominent black dots along the wing margins, whereas in D. propages the
marginal line is fine, indistinct, entire.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The holotype is from Mt Dulit in Sarawak. Chey (1994)
recorded a second specimen in a Pinus caribaea plantation in the lowlands
of Sabah at Brumas.
