Bocula caradrinoides

Diagnosis. The wings are a medium to dark brown, the forewings olive-tinged, with a dark, round reniform stigma and, fainter, a small orbicular stigma and three fine, irregularly transverse fasciae. There is no black marginal area, but the position of its inner border is marked by a narrow pale fascia, slightly concave and edged darker distad.

Geographical range. Java, Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is a lowland forest species but has also been taken on the coast (Seria) of Brunei. During the Mulu survey most specimens were taken at 250m in forest on the limestone G. Api, but a few were taken in alluvial forest at 70m at Long Pala where the light trap was sited on a limestone outcrop.
