Godonela avitusaria

Both wings are basally pale, distally warm grey marked with brown, the two sections divided by the postmedial, that of the forewing being only very weakly angled subcostally. The borders in the female are more variegated, being more darkly marked with brown.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Sundaland, Sulawesi, Moluccas.

Habitat preference. The species ranges from the lowlands to 1930m and appears to be common over the whole of that range.

Biology. Barlow (1982) gave Albizzia as a host-plant.
