Celama ochrolopha Hampson, 1911, Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (8), 8: 397.
Diagnosis. The forewings have a pale grey ground and the hindwings are a
shade darker. The former have a sequence of curved black fasciae, an antemedial,
a double postmedial and, close to the latter, a somewhat more dentate
submarginal. There are some irregular black marks in the discal area, enclosed
by the greatest curvature of the postmedial. The male genitalia have a strongly
curved, slender, acute harpe, and the aedeagus apex has a curved spine as in
duplicilinea and mesomelana.
Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Borneo.
Habitat preference. All six specimens were taken during the Mulu survey in
lower montane forest: at 900m and 1200m on G. Api; at 1000m on G. Mulu.
