Gyrtona inclusalis Walker,
1863, List Specimens lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus. 27: 94.
Diagnosis. This species is smaller than both the preceding (8-9mm), with a more
transverse, subdorsally dentate border to the pale basal zone. Again, it is most
reliably distinguished by genitalia characters: in the male the uncus is short,
stout, the arms of the valves closely adpressed with the dorsal one centrally
expanded; in the female the bursa has a signum as in proximalis, and the
lamella postvaginalis has a semicircular transverse fold.
Geographical range. Borneo, Singapore.
Habitat preference. The type is from Sarawak and there is another
specimen from Bidi, a lowland locality. During the Mulu survey singletons were
taken in wet heath forest (kerangas) and at 900m (lower montane forest) and
1200m (upper montane forest) on the limestone G. Api.
