Chiasmia minuta Warren, 1905, Novit. zool., 12: 433.

Monocerotesa minuta

This and the next species have a similar facies of punctate or broken dark brown fasciae on yellow. In minuta the hindwing postmedial and antemedial closely enclose the discal spot, whereas the former is well separated from it and more fragmented in the next species. The marginal bands are more clearly interrupted by a yellow bar centrally in minuta. The genitalic differences are as illustrated.

Geographical range. Borneo, ?Sumatra.

Habitat preference. The few specimens seen have been from lowland forest, with one record from mangrove.
