Diplurodes inundata (in USNM)

This is a strongly marked species with the basal half of the hindwing and the medial zone of the forewing predominantly white, the hindwing with a strong, straight black medial line. The forewing basal area is grey, with a convex distal border. There is a longitudinally darker bar centrally between the forewing postmedial and submarginal. The male genitalia are distinguished by the saccular ornamentation where there are two long, straight, slender, pale spines together with a short, darker one (this is longer in Javan material (slide 13162)).

Habitat preference. The species is recorded infrequently from forests in the lowlands to the lower montane zone.
