Hypena dentilinealis Moore, 1877, Proc. zool. Soc. Lond., 1877: 613.
Urbona dentilinealis Moore; Kobes, 1997: 62.
Diagnosis. This and the next two species have similar pale silvery grey
forewings with darker discal dots, linear, oblique fasciae that run from the
apex to subbasally on the dorsum, and a weaker, more irregular, less oblique
submarginal row of marks. In dentilinealis the oblique forewing fascia is
distinctly irregular, not an even curve; the discal mark is longitudinal rather
than transverse. The male genitalia have the dorsal margin of the valve without
small angular processes.
Geographical range. Andamans, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.
Habitat preference. All material seen is from lowland forest, most taken on
or adjacent to limestone during the Mulu survey.
