Nolasena ferrifervens

. The facies is somewhat similar to that of some species of Immidae, hypenine noctuid species such as Catada charalis Swinhoe (Australia) and genera such as Lasiolopha Turner and Chloriola Hampson in the Nolidae, but on the forewing, the double, oblique, dark antemedial fasciae and the more irregular, white-edged, dark and similarly oblique postmedial fascia are distinctive. The scales between the antemedial fasciae and in a narrow band distal to the postmedial are slightly glossy.

Geographical range. Sri Lanka, India, Borneo, Philippines.

Habitat preference. Older (including type) material is from lowland localities. The only specimens recorded in recent surveys came to light on a boat amongst mangrove in the Bay of Brunei.
