Nadagara Walker

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.
