Type species: vigaia Walker (Sri Lanka)
This genus shows most of the tribal features but is morphologically
diverse. The forewings tend to be rather narrow, as do the valves of the male
genitalia. The valves do not have the costa produced apically, but support
coremata externally at their base in most species (except comprensata Walker
and scitilineata Walker).
The genus ranges from India to Samoa but is most diverse in the Oriental
tropics. There are seven species in Borneo.
