Manoba potterorum sp. n.


Manoba potterorum

6mm. The facies is similar to that of
goodfieldi, but with darker grey shading medially and subbasally on the costa. The male genitalia are distinguished by a strongly developed juxta with a bifid spine dorsally. The valves are sinuous, apically acute, and the harpe is rather scoop-like. The aedeagus lacks ornamentation. A male from Sikkim (slide 17621) has similar facies and development of the juxta, though lacking the bifid spine, but the valve apex is more rounded with a central spur, and the harpe is more zig-zag in shape.

Holotype . SAR[AWAK], Moore Coll., 94-106, BM noctuid slide 17756.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The specimen, probably taken by A.R. Wallace, is most likely to have been from the lowlands.
