Scopula parodites

Diagnosis. The fasciae are irregular, those on the hindwing particularly sinuous in their course; the forewing postmedial contains black flecks on the veins.

Taxonomic notes. The holotype male has lost its abdomen, so the Bornean specimen is matched on facies characters only.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, S. Burma, Borneo.

Habitat preference. A male was taken in the understorey of hill dipterocarp forest at 140m on the lower slopes of G. Mulu and another in a similar situation near the Danum Valley Field Centre in Sabah.
