Stenocarsia sthenoptera Swinhoe 
Thermesia sthenoptera Swinhoe, 1895, Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (6), 15: 12.


Stenocarsia sthenoptera

Diagnosis. The build and facies is reminiscent of that of Hypospila, Tochara and the next genus, but the wings are a darker, blackish brown and have more obscure, irregular fasciae rather than straight ones. The forewings are relatively narrow, and the reniform is picked out slightly paler.

Geographical range. India, Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is an uncommon species of lowland forest, including heath forest, not recorded above 200m. However, Chey (1994) recorded several specimens in softwood plantations, particularly those of Acacia mangium, in the lowlands of Sabah.
