Elusa diloba Hampson,
1909, Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (8), 4: 376.
male antennae are simply bifid, more broadly so than in Elusa
The forewings are more variegated than in other taxa, with diffuse broad, medial
and submarginal dark brown bands. When the reniform is white, the posterior
element is much larger, longitudinally ovoid, more strongly produced basad. The
male eighth sternite is much as in puncticeps but with weak lateral rods.
The valve is sinuous, apically acute, lacking harpe and corema as in puncticeps;
the apical portion is strongly setose. The uncus is flexed downwards,
acutely and strongly bifid.
specimens were taken at 500m in hill dipterocarp forest on G. Mulu, and one in
kerangas (wet heath) forest on a river terrace at 150m.
