Anigraea rubida (Singapore)

This is a large species with dark purplish grey-brown forewings crossed by obscure, oblique, darker wavy fasciae. There is a dark, diffuse bar subapically. The male eighth sternite has massive coremata and the terminal spines of the central part are relatively long, arising from a broad basal part; the valves of the male genitalia are distinctively oblong; the saccus is very long, slender over the distal two thirds except for a bulbous apex.

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

Habitat preference. The only specimen taken in Borneo recently was from lower montane forest on G. Api during the Mulu survey.
