Xenochroa dohora Kobes, 1997: 143.
Hampson sensu Holloway, 1976: 26.
Diagnosis. This species has facies somewhat similar to that of obvia,
but is less rufous, sometimes vinous brown, with less oblique, more transverse
straight fasciae. The male genitalia are closer to those of fuscosa than
obvia, having a relatively dorsal cluster of cornuti near the base of the
ductus ejaculatorius of the aedeagus vesica. There is some variability in the
size of the vesica and the cluster of cornuti.
As discussed under
Hampson below, it appears that Kobes (1997) has reversed the identities of
dohora and his bironga (= fuscomarginata) in his Plate V.
Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo, ?Assam (slide 17863).
Habitat preference. The species is infrequent in forests from the lowlands
to almost 2000m.
