"Euprocti”s sp. 2543

A single female, somewhat resembling that of kamburonga, was taken in the vicinity of Paka Cave on G. Kinabalu at 2970m. It was taken by day, flying over the stream by the cave at 4 p.m. It was included in the paratypic series for kamburonga but appears to be distinct. It lacks the black discal spot and scattering of black scales typical of kamburonga. The genitalia are much less setose, the ductus convolute rather than a sclerotised tube, and the bursa pyriform.
