Aiteta brooksi Holloway; Kobes, 1997: 165.
Diagnosis. The forewings are much darker than in musculina, an even
grey that grades slightly paler at the apex. The fasciae are straight, oblique,
more or less parallel, except the postmedial is distinctly angled basad at
one-third from the costa; it has a diffusely darker ‘shadow’ band adjacent to it
distally over its anterior two-thirds.
Geographical range. Burma, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, ?Andamans.
Habitat preference. The species is uncommon, most material taken in lowland
forest, especially alluvial forest, during the Mulu survey. However, one
specimen (a paratype) has been taken at 1930m on G. Kinabalu.
A species tentatively identified as brooksi in the Andamans was reared
(unpublished IIE records) from Terminalia (Combretaceae).
