Pseudalcis cinerascens Warren
Pseudalcis cinerascens Warren, 1897, Novit. zool., 4: 97.

Pseudalcis cinerascens

See the previous species. Some paler specimens may resemble P. albata Warren, but are distinguished by male genitalic features: in albata the juxta bifurcations are longer, more tapering, acute; the interior setose lobe on the valve is more shallowly curved, the setae less dense.

Taxonomic notes. The Sumatran and Javan P. albata shares a number of unusual genitalic features with cinerascens as discussed in the generic description.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The habitat and distribution resembles that of catoriata. Both species were originally described from Pulo Laut in S. Kalimantan.
