Thoracolophotos albilimitata

Diagnosis. The forewings are distinctively patterned, relatively narrow and with an acute apex. They are shades of grey, darker over the distal half beyond a fine white line that extends obliquely between, and fades away towards, the rounded tornus and one third along the costa. The wings are traversed also by diffusely darker fasciae, the postmedial ones being truncated at the white line or displaced basad posterior to it.

Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat preference. This is an infrequent species of lowland forest, including heath forest, though one specimen was recorded at 1790m on G. Mulu and another at 1618m on Bukit Retak in Brunei.
