transversa Candeze comb. n.
Phlogophora transversa Candeze,
1927, Encycl. ent. (Ser B3), 2: 84.
Phlegetonia transversa Candeze;
Holloway, 1976: 17.
Diagnosis. The forewing pattern is similar to that of the delatrix group but
the zone basal to the oblique pale medial bar is paler, rather than darker, than
the distal zone; the oblique bar is continued by the oblique reniform and there
is a distinctive dark brown streak running from the angle of the postmedial to
the marginal angle of the forewing.
Geographical range. ‘Indochina’, Borneo, New Guinea, Bismarcks.
Habitat preference. Only four specimens are known from Borneo, one from
1200m on G. Kinabalu, two from lower montane forest (1000m) on G. Mulu and the
last from much lower altitude at Santubong, south west Sarawak.
