Plecoptera quaesita

. The general colour is as in nebulilinea, but the forewings are apically more acute, particularly in males, and the postmedial fasciation is inconspicuous, irregular, within a diffusely darker submarginal shade. The hindwings are much paler than the forewings, but have a narrowly darker border with a diffuse inner boundary that is curved rather than straight; this is broader in females.

Geographical range. India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Andamans, Borneo, N. Moluccas, Australia (Nielsen et al., 1996).

Habitat preference. The species has not been taken in recent surveys. The type material of fetna Swinhoe is labelled as being from G. Kinabalu but lacks precise data.
