"Euproctis" sp. 1135
Euproctis irrorata Moore, sensu Holloway, 1976: 47.

"Euproctis" sp. 1135

Diagnosis and taxonomic notes.
The male is a uniform pale brown, except for a vaguely darker postmedial on the forewing. A superficial resemblance to Orvasca irrorata Moore (See Orvasca Walker Gen.rev.) from Java is not supported by the male genitalia which do not relate to any other grouping in the tribe, particularly the broad aedeagus with a massive cornutus, and the relatively long, curved uncus. The valve shape is also distinctive. Further material in better condition is needed to establish the status of this taxon.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The single male was taken at 1930m on G. Kinabalu.
