Arctornis erasmia Toxopeus comb. n.
Redoa erasmia Toxopeus, 1948, Treubia, 19: 466.

Diagnosis. Toxopeus indicated that the forewing is satiny white with undulations in the gloss, and with orange-buff edging to the costa. No discal spot is mentioned. The frons and palps are marked with pale bands of colour, bone to pale fawn. The valve has a much elongated lower half that tapers to its apex, which is upturned. The harpe is small, club-shaped, armed with numerous teeth, but without a needle at its end (in comparison with satinata), which lies just in the middle of the valvular excavations. The uncus is long, projecting, cylindrical at its end.

Geographical range. Borneo.
