Condate angulina

Diagnosis. This is a larger species than congeners, with the section of the postmedial anterior to the angle more evenly curved, placing the angle much further from the costa. The postmedials on both wings have a distinctly paler brown area distad that extends to the submarginals.

Taxonomic note. As noted above, the facies is somewhat atypical of Condate. In the male abdomen, the eighth segment is not modified significantly from the general framed corematous type, and the genitalia are more typical of the Saroba group of genera, particularly in the valve and the juxta, the latter with a central projection.

Geographical range. India, Bangladesh, Taiwan, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Bornean material seen is restricted to two specimens taken at Bidi in the lowlands of Sarawak.
