Maguda santubong sp. n. 
8mm. The holotype is somewhat worn but has facies similar to suffusa except the medial area of the forewing is a distinctly darker brown. A second specimen that may well be conspecific is less worn but lacks an abdomen; it is illustrated and has distinctly paler basal, post discal and subapical areas on the dark brown forewing. The basal area has a straight, transverse distal border at the antemedial. In the male genitalia the saccus is much broader, and the valve bases are well separated rather than adjacent. The coremata on the valve are much smaller, the larger exterior process is apically bifid, and the centre one is shorter and broader. The innermost one is clublike rather than triangular, and out-turned, set on each side at the inner edge of the valve sacculus, adjacent to the juxta.
