See Stictoptera grisea Moore.

Taxonomic note. This is probably the Sundanian sister-species of grisea. Records for the species outside Sundaland in Holloway (1976) were based on misidentifications of rather white specimens of grisea.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. On G. Kinabalu the species was taken infrequently from 1000-2600m. During the Mulu survey one specimen only was taken, at 1200m in upper montane forest of the limestone G. Api. In Brunei two specimens were taken at 1600m on Bukit Retak, and three in lowland dipterocarp forest at Ulu Temburong and Labi.
