Cania styx sp. n.  

Cania styx (holotype)

Cania styx

13mm. Both forewings and hindwings are very dark brown apart from a medium brown zone at the base of the forewing that tapers away along the dorsum. In the genitalia the aedeagus is as in guichardi but the two processes of the uncus are very much shorter than in the other two species, with an interior 'step' on either side of a central circular notch; the furca is relatively as long as in bandura.

The female mentioned above for guichardi could equally well be that of styx.

Holotype BRUNEI: 15m, Daerah Belait, Swamp forest, 20.12.1979. (Lt. Col. M.G. Allen) BM limacodid slide 516.

Geographical range. Borneo.
