Phthonoloba bracteola

Phthonoloba bracteola

The forewings have a golden orange appearance against a straw ground colour, because dark brown fasciation is much reduced compared to congeners.

Taxonomic notes. Reexamination of the two females attributed to fasciata by Holloway (1976) suggests that they are better placed with bracteola. However, a male of a second species of the group from 1200m at Kundasang on the slopes of G. Kinabalu was noted in the Herbulot collection too late for inclusion.
