Holloway, 1976: 80.
Diagnosis. This is the largest Bornean Diplurodes, differing from the
preceding three also in the strongly sinuous nature of the postmedials and the
grey shading basal to the medials of both wings. The male genitalia resemble
those of the following species in having only a single saccular process,
strongly sinuous, apically more darkly sclerotised. This process is longer and
more slender than that in D. vestita, where the valve apex is rounded
rather than acute.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. This is a species characteristic of lower and upper
montane zones, currently only known from G. Kinabalu, G. Mulu and the Penrissen
Mts. of Sarawak.
