Aplotelia nubilosa Warren,
1914, Novit. zool. 21: 409.
Eutelia nubilosa Warren; Gaede, 1937; Holloway, 1976: 16.
Diagnosis. The basic fasciation of the forewing is similar to that of diplographa
but the overall colour is a rich brown, darker in a subbasal band and
postmedially or, alternatively, over the whole medial area. The hindwing is dark
brown with a basal white zone. Targalla suffundens Walker (q.v.) is
similar in appearance but its forewing is a yellower brown with a more distinct
double sinuous postmedial and with the darker area of the wing never extending
medially and always to the base rather than to the subbasal; the pale area of
the hindwing is less extensive.
Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, Philippines.
Habitat preference. Only three specimens have been taken in recent years,
all in Sabah. Two were taken at Kalabalang near the east coast and one at 1200m
on G. Kinabalu.
