Walker Gen. rev.
The holotype is the only specimen of latifascialis, a male in UM, Oxford.
The abdomen was found to be damaged and incomplete, the genitalia and eighth
segment being absent. Hence the status of this taxon will only be established
when fresh material is available.
The hindwings have trifine venation, and the forewings have lost one radial
sector vein. The forewing facies is unusual, but does not accord closely with
that seen in typical Manoba or Nola. It therefore seems advisable
to revive the genus for the time being, though Hampson (1900) maintained
Selca as a subgenus of Nola, defined by possession of bipectinate
female from Endau Rompin in the Peninsular Malaysian state of Johor (in UM,
Amsterdam) has similar, but not identical, facies to the Bornean specimen and
may be congeneric.
