Pangrapta lasiophora

Pangrapta lasiophora

Diagnosis and taxonomic note
. See the previous species. As well as the similarities of facies, the male genitalia also indicate a very close relationship to shivula and other Pangrapta species, hence lasiophora is transferred to Pangrapta, and also the related P. mediopallens Wileman & West comb. n. (Philippines).

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. Apart from one male taken in a hut at over 1000m in moss forest on G. Dulit, all material has been taken in lowland forest, where the species is infrequent. During the Mulu survey, the only four specimens recorded were from heath forest on a river terrace, though records from Brunei are mostly from hill dipterocarp forest (Ulu Temburong, Labi).
