Diomea absorbens Walker 
Corsa absorbens Walker, [1863] 1864, J. Linn. Soc. (Zool.), 7: 166.

Diomea absorbens

Diagnosis. The forewing facies is diagnostic, the wing almost entirely filled by a pale brown patch that is edged whitish except where it meets the distal and dorsal margins. The base, apex and tornus are dark brown. The hindwing is almost uniform, unlike in the next two species.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The holotype female was taken by A.R. Wallace in Sarawak. Only one other female is known, from near Pontianak (see the holotype of the previous species) in the lowlands of Kalimantan.
