Anoba pectinata

. This and the next species have very similar facies, particularly the rather archipelagic dark green-brown markings on the fawn forewings. A. pectinata is slightly smaller with darker hindwings. The basal dark patch of the forewing is more regular, less broken, and the medial one is more contiguous with those towards the apex. The male antennae are narrowly bipectinate.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Hainan, Sri Lanka, Borneo, Sumatra ( HS / ZSM), Java.

Habitat preference. Six specimens were taken during the Mulu survey at 250-270m in dipterocarp forest on the slopes of the limestone G. Api. Two were taken by G. Martin in lowland forest at Barito Ulu in central Kalimantan. There is also material without altitude data taken by Waterstradt in the G. Kinabalu area.
