Supernola Hampson

Type species: subrufa Hampson, Borneo.

This is an enigmatic genus, known only from the holotype female of the type species. The specimen is somewhat worn. The hindwing venation is trifine. The forewing has a pinkish tinge that is more evident centrally, where there is an elliptical arrangement of five black dots. There are more irregular dark marks along
the costa. The head and thorax are whitish.

The genitalia have the ductus long, but only the basal half is strongly sclerotised. The pyriform bursa is set asymmetrically on the ductus; it has a single, transverse, slightly invaginated, ridge-like signum that may be homologous with the more derived type.
