Dooabia lunifera transrufa (paratype)

Dooabia lunifera transrufa  

See Dooabia plana Prout.

Taxonomic notes. The processes from the valve costa are more elongate in the Bornean subspecies though of the same general form as in the typical race. The cornutus in the vesica is very short, spinose, rather than digitate.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya; Borneo, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. The species is somewhat more common than D. plana and flies over a similar altitude range in upper montane forest, though one specimen was taken at 2600m on G. Kinabalu.
