Nadagara intractata Walker,
1862, List Specimens lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus., 24: 1047.
Diagnosis. The fasciae on both wings are irregularly crenulate, the costal end of
the hindwing fasciae being interior to the dorsal end of the forewing postmedial,
more so than in scitilineata, the only other species with this feature. N.
scitilineata also has crenulate fasciae but that on the hindwing is only
weakly so, and the fasciae on both wings are more distinctly paler-edged. Both
species have a long aedeagus vesica with a single terminal cornutus, but the
furca with cristae is short, splayed broadly apically in intractata, and
long, slender, tapering in scitilineata.
Geographical range. Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo,
Habitat preference. No recent material has been taken. The species is
possibly restricted to lowland forest.
