Pantanopsis diehli

Pantanopsis diehli

A small species with distinctive reddish brown patches on pale brown forewings.

Taxonomic note. The Sulawesi species celebensis Gaede is obviously congeneric with P. diehli, having similar facies and male genitalia. It is therefore transferred to Pantanopsis from Liparopsis, comb. n.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species has been recorded infrequently in various types of lowland forest. In the G. Mulu National Park it was recorded mostly from low altitude limestone forest on G. Api.
