Probithia exclusa Walker sensu Holloway, 1976: 78,

Probithia imprimata

Facies characters distinguishing this and exclusa are noted above. In the male genitalia there is a minor difference in the setation of the lobe on the dorsal arm of the valve: in imprimata  here are fewer ranks of setae, aligned parallel to the margin, rather than extending more obliquely.

Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. This species has also mostly been recorded from lowland forest, but one specimen was taken in upper montane forest on G. Mulu.
