Chrysoblephara chrysoteucta Prout comb. n.
Ectropis chrysoteucta Prout, 1926, J. Bombay nat. Hist. Soc., 31: 799.

Chrysoblephara chrysoteucta
(in USNM)

See the generic description: the combination of extensive orange irroration, fine, black fasciae and marginal pale patches is diagnostic.

Taxonomic note. The holotype female from Burma is larger than the only specimen of that sex from Borneo, with the marginal pale patches indistinct. The markings otherwise are similar.

Geographical range. Burma, Borneo.

Habitat preference. All the specimens seen are from a narrow range of altitude in the vicinity of G. Kinabalu: two from 1530m, 1km south of Kundasan (in USNM, Washington); one from Mesilau (1500m), one from Kinabalu Park H.Q. (1620m) amongst the material catalogued by Holloway (1976) but not identified at that time.
