Diagnosis. This is one of the smaller species with green and blackish
forewings, but these are rather obscurely marked except for a diagnostically
straight pale green line of the postmedial running obliquely to the costa from a
more distal position. There is also a fine white submarginal line, slightly
curved, cutting off the forewing apex. In the male genitalia the process from
the valve costa has a strongly sinuous basal margin, and the aedeagus vesica
(not everted) contains two bundles of relatively robust cornuti. The female has
a cluster of six spines in the bursa; the setose lamella antevaginalis is
unusually large and rounded.
Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia.
Bornean material is limited to the type specimens
of dentilinea and attenuatalis, both collected in Sarawak by A.R.
Wallace, probably in the lowlands, and one further male from Kuching.
