Hampson comb. n.
Hampson, 1898, J. Bombay nat. Hist. Soc., 11: 441.
The forewing facies is similar to that of the
previous two species, except the black fasciation is more clearly and finely
defined on paler grey, and the hindwing is a distinctly darker grey.
This species has been placed in
Walker (e.g. Poole, 1989), but has facies and male and female genitalic features
more consistent with placement in Barasa, though the bursa of the female
is much more lightly ornamented. More material being studied by the Budapest
group shows some variation in facies and the shape of the harpe in the male
genitalia; possibly more than one species is involved. Bornean material
resembles theirs from Sumatra and Vietnam.
N.E. Himalaya, Burma, Borneo; the Budapest group
material is from Thailand, Vietnam.
During the Mulu survey the
species was taken frequently in lowland alluvial forest and in forest on
limestone at 250m.
