Rothschild & Jordan
species: vigens Butler.
The three Oriental species are small, greyish, with rather angular
forewing margins and strong dark brown discal marks. The fasciation is
fasciae basal to the discal spot strongly curved. The male genitalia are
of general macroglossine type, though the apical processes of the aedeagus
are relatively weak, not strongly flexed back.
The larva has segments T3 and A1 strongly broadened, and extends them when
threatened. The. illustrations in Dupont & Roepke (1941) show the
ventral margin of this expanded zone as strongly granulose. The horn is
long, straight in early instars, shorter, downcurved in later ones.
The recorded host-plants are in the family Dilleniaceae.
