Celama liparisalis Walker, 1865, List Specimens lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus., 32: 500.


Nola liparisalis

The male antennae are finely bipectinate. The ground colour is white, traversed by brown markings: an irregular, broadly lunulate submarginal; a slightly sinuous double postmedial; a more solid, curved antemedial that tapers away towards the dorsum. There is also a brown patch at the costa just basal to the postmedial. See also the next species and N.
bifascialis Walker, erroneously regarded as conspecific with this one by Hampson (1900).

Taxonomic note.
N. leucoscopula Hampson (Sri Lanka) has similar facies and male abdominal characters, so may be related.

Geographical range. Borneo, Singapore, Burma.

Habitat preference. The original material consists of specimens taken by A.R. Wallace in Sarawak, probably in the lowlands. During the Mulu survey specimens were taken from the lowlands to 1780m, but only with frequency at 900m in lower montane forest on the limestone G. Api.
