Platyjionia sp. n. 
Externally, the species is very like
mediorufa but has a more triangular medial zone to the forewing, the postmedial being straight rather than angled. The female genitalia have the ductus bursa slightly longer but narrower, and both the neck and the bulb of the corpus bursae are similarly longer. There is a distinctive, scobinate, semicircular lobe immediately posterior to the ostium. The single Bornean specimen, a damaged female (slide 18302), is from regenerating (10 year) alluvial forest at 50m near Long Melinau at the edge of the G. Mulu National Park. The species also occurs in Peninsular Malaysia and Sumatra (HS / K).
