Siglophora haemoxantha Zerny; Kobes, 1997: 40.
Diagnosis. The forewing facies is generally similar to that of the previous
two species, but the distal yellow patch is triangular, extending to the apex,
and the basal one is divided obliquely, the basal triangle being more densely
invested with brown squiggles.
Kobes (1997) discussed the relationship between
this species and the mainland Asian
Moore, both having a fovea at the base of the male forewing. Both have the
coremata on the male genitalia stated to be a distinguishing feature by Kobes
(1997), but these are more massive in haemoxantha, which also has broader
valves and a slender, straight cornutus in the vesica rather than a more robust,
Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Bali, Borneo, Philippines.
In recent surveys a singleton was taken in lowland
dipterocarp forest in the Ulu Temburong of Brunei. An older specimen from near
Pontianak in the lowlands of Kalimantan has also been seen.
