hyriona Hampson, 1926, Descr. Gen. Spec. Noctuinae,
The forewings are a very dark grey with the usual fasciation of the genus
present but obscurely darker. The hindwing postmedial and submarginal have a
slightly paler edging narrowly on their distal sides and, though very irregular
in course, remain about the same distance apart, and enclose a band of dark,
note. The eighth segment of the female genitalia lacks setae except
at its posterior margin, but is closely associated with the seventh segment and
the ostium in a similar manner to that seen in the Throana
of genera (p. 303), the seventh segment having a pair of lateral pockets. The
corpus bursae is spherical, unornamented. The forewing orbicular stigma is
enlarged on the underside as in some members of the Throana group.
The type species of Stenozethes is typical of Pangrapta,
preference. Only two females are known, the holotype from Pulo Laut and one
from hill dipterocarp forest at 500m on G. Mulu.
