Borbacha pardaria Guenée  
Anisodes pardaria Guenée, 1857, Hist. nat. Ins. Spec. Gen. Lep. 9: 420.

Borbacha pardaria

This and the next species are very similar, but altipardaria is larger, the grey fasciae on average broader and more entire. The cornutus of the aedeagus vesica is twice as long in altipardaria, straight rather than curved and set more distally than in pardaria. The pardaria specimen illustrated has unusually broad fasciae: the vesica character is reliable, however.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Sundaland, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. The only specimen taken in recent surveys was from lowland alluvial forest in the G. Mulu National Park.
