Etanna binotata Hampson comb. n.
Apothripa binotata Hampson, 1912, Cat. Lepid. Phalaenae Br. Mus., 11: 250.


Etanna binotata

Both sexes have a rufous brown forewing divided longitudinally as in females of the previous two species and with two white dots at the margin where the line meets it, but the line is black rather than pale and runs to the base of the wing rather than to the costa subbasally; the anterior half of the wing is not paler than the posterior half.

Taxonomic note. The male genitalia indicate that E. vailima Tams comb. n. (Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu) is closely related. The scaled arms on the valve are longer than in the previous two species.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Borneo, New Guinea, Solomons.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen seen is from Tenom in the lowlands of Sabah.
