Iridoplecta ferrifera

See generic description. The facies is not easily confused with that of any other species.

Taxonomic notes. Minor differences in the relative sizes of the aedeagus cornuti have been noted, but material available from each locality is too limited to indicate whether these have a geographical basis.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Bali.

Habitat preference. Bornean material is all from G. Kinabalu. The two specimens with altitude data are from 1050m and 1930m (latter in USNM). Material from other parts of Sundaland is also from montane localities.
