Mudaria tayi Holloway comb.n.  
Plagideicta tayi Holloway, 1976: 13.


Mudaria tayi


Diagnosis.
The forewings are a less rich brown than in other species; the apical leprous patch is elongate, irregular, extending in the direction of the narrow central patch, almost to form a complete arc with it. There are large elliptical zones on male tergites 4-7; the uncus is slender, triangular; the harpe has two slender processes.

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. The type specimen was taken at 1930m on G. Kinabalu but four specimens taken since then are all from lowland rainforest. Two further specimens were located in the Kinabalu Expedition material, from 1200m and 10m. The long Sumatran series is also from the lowlands.
