Anigraea serratilinea

The general forewing pattern elements of this species are as in rubida but the colour is browner and there is paler longitudinal streaking such that the dark subapical bar is more prominent. In the male eighth sternite there is a paddle-shaped cluster of blade-like scales in addition to hair scales; the apical spines of the sternite are very slender, almost straight. The valves of the genitalia are very short and the saccus is basally broad, distally slender, with a zone of tapering centrally.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Sundaland, Philippines, Sulawesi, New Guinea.

Habitat preference. Three out of four specimens taken during the Mulu survey were from dipterocarp dominated lowland forest, the other was from lower montane forest on G. Mulu. The specimen taken during the Kinabalu survey was from 2100m.
