Cataloxia diagrapta Hampson


Cataloxia diagrapta

Cataloxia diagrapta
Hampson, 1926, Descr. Gen. Spec. Noctuinae: 295. Diagnosis. See the generic description. The species resembles somewhat a small version of the ennomine geometrid genus Ephemerophila Warren, but this has the discal marks black rather than paler.

Geographical range. Borneo, Singapore (H.N. Ridley specimen).

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimens are the holotype from Sandakan on the coast of Sabah and one from a Paraserianthes falcataria plantation in the lowlands of Sabah near Brumas. The second was a voucher for records of ‘Ophiderinae 5’ in Chey (1994) of three from this plantation type, two from Acacia mangium plantation and one from Pinus caribaea plantation, suggestive of a possible association with Leguminosae.
