Cossedia sp.


A single female matching the female referred by Kobes (1997) to his concept of erateinalis has been taken at 1670m on Bukit Pagon in Brunei; the material noted by Kobes was from lowland localities. It has a yellower centre to the hindwing than that of the next species, and the margin is less angular; there is no subtornal yellow patch on the forewing. A male that might be referable to it is also illustrated, matching the female in forewing pattern. It is not exactly the same as the erateinalis male illustrated by Kobes (1997) in that, though it has a similarly falcate apex to the hindwing angle, this is more extensively yellow. The genitalia have conspicuous lateral patches of spines on the anellus; the aedeagus has a shorter cornutus than in hyriodes Hampson, and a vesica generally more as proesei Kobes and allies.
