Mudaria major


Diagnosis.
The central leprous patch on the forewing is elongate, arcuate, curving out towards the apical patch, partially divided into three elements. The tornal spot has two small white dots on the postmedial just basal to it. There are weak elliptical zones in male tergites 4-7; the uncus is oblong; the harpe is bifid, one process slender, one short, angular.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. A few specimens have been captured in lowland (including mangrove) forest, but the type series was from a cultivated area with forest remnants at 1200m on G. Kinabalu. During the Mulu survey a few specimens were taken at 1500m in an open upper montane zone on the limestone G. Api.
