Arctornis flora Swinhoe
Leucoma flora Swinhoe, 1903, Trans. ent. Soc. London, 1903:
Diagnosis. This and the next species have similar fine reticulated brown marking on
the forewing, but in flora the medial zone is darker, whereas in florella
it is paler. A long areole is present in the Rs system, and the valve costa
has a diagnostic subbasal process rather than a central angular projection.
Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra.
Habitat preference. All records have been from lowland forest: the
species is uncommon.
Biology. The species has been reared from a larva on Durio (Bombacaceae)
in Peninsular Malaysia (unpublished IIE records).
