Xenochroa trilineata

Diagnosis and taxonomic note.
The species is slightly smaller than the previous two and has dark, ochreous orange-brown, uniform forewings crossed by straight and well separate blackish brown antemedial and postmedial fasciae. The synonymy brings together taxa of this facies type. The specimen illustrated as trilineata by Kobes (1997) is probably
X. transpurpuralis Holloway, but that illustrated as padangensis Roepke (Plate VIII: 284) could be trilineata. One paratype of trilineata is not conspecific (see the previous species).

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species is infrequent in montane forest, recorded from 900m to 1930m.
