Rhynchobapta eburnivena Warren
Phanauta eburnivena Warren, 1896, Novit. zool. 3:147.
Nadagara albovenaria Leech, 1897, Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (6), 19: 302.
Rhynchobapta eburnivena Warren; Holloway, 1976: 78.


This species could be confused with members of the genus Nadagara discussed on (See Nadagara Walker), but the pale edging to the postmedials, the very fine, pale antemedials of the forewing and the pale delineation of the veins are diagnostic.

Taxonomic notes. The Bornean specimen has an angular process on the valve costa just short of the apex (Holloway, 1976: fig 545). This does not occur in Himalayan and Sulawesi specimens examined.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Japan, Borneo, Sumatra, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen was taken at 1200m. That from Sulawesi was taken at 980m (Project Wallace material).
