Nothomiza xanthocolona Meyrick  
Ephoria xanthocolona Meyrick, 1887, Trans. ent. Soc. London, 1897: 78.

Nothomiza xanthocolona

The pinkish wings with yellow triangles on the forewing costa render xanthocolona unmistakable.

Taxonomic notes. The male genitalia show an asymmetry unusual in the genus.

Geographical range. Borneo, ?Singapore (H.N. Ridley specimen).

Habitat preference. The only recent material seen is that from the Mulu survey, where the species was infrequent in lowland kerangas forest and in lower montane forest (G. Mulu and G. Api), an ecological ‘disjunction’ commented on by Holloway (1984).
