Nygmia lali Schintlmeister
Euproctis lali Schintlmeister, 1994: 133.
Diagnosis. The facies is distinctive, both species having a prominent, diffusely
pale-ringed, black discal dot on the forewing, which is otherwise a uniform bone
colour, darker and richer in the male.
Taxonomic note. The male genitalia have valves and an aedeagus vesica similar to species
in the sequence from exitela to tigris, but the uncus is
distinctly broader and hooked.
Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo.
Habitat preference. Three specimens have been taken at 300-350m in the
Ulu Temburong, Brunei, and five in the vicinity of the Danum Valley Field
Centre, Sabah (150-170m). Most were in primary forest, one in logged forest.
