Pangrapta macariana

Diagnosis. This is a rather uniform grey-brown species with irregular blackish fasciation. The hindwing has a white discal mark as in albiseriata and also a similar dark extension from the submarginal to the margin, but it lacks the associated series of white marks.

Taxonomic note. The male abdomen is consistent in features with Pangrapta. The valves are narrow, tapering, but with the process relatively basal, close to the sacculus. The aedeagus has two long diverticula, the ends of each with numerous robust spines.

Geographical range. Singapore (holotype only; H.N. Ridley specimen), Borneo, Sumatra (HS / K).

Habitat preference. The species is uncommon but occurs in forests from the lowlands to 1000m, including heath forest and that on limestone.
