Pangrapta aviusalis

. A small species, aviusalis has rather regular, linear fasciation up to and including the postmedials. Distal to this fascia, the hindwing is characterised by a jagged ‘mountain range’ of blackish brown.

Taxonomic note. The valves of the male genitalia are of the generic type but the aedeagus has a rather globular vesica with scobination but no large cornuti. The female has dense setae on the eighth segment. The ductus is as long as the corpus bursae, broad, scobinate. The unornamented corpus bursae is rather triangular and set obliquely on the ductus, with the ductus seminalis arising from the basal acute angle.

Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. The species is uncommon in lowland forest and extends up to 1000m.
