Amata pseudextensa Rothschild,
1910, Novit. Zool. 17: 435.
Syotomis pseudextensa Rothschild;
Seitz, 1912-1913: 73.
Diagnosis. This species may be distinguished from other similar montane taxa (the
next three) with pale heads and slender bodies by the very extensive transparent
areas on both wings, coupled with pale yellow rings on the basal and fifth
abdominal segments, black scales on forewing vein CuA2 between the two
transparent patches (cf. whitish in the next species) and absence of white
fringe scales at the forewing apex.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The species is only known from the holotype female
from G. Kinabalu. It has no altitude data. The female referred to by Holloway
(1976) was probably that of the next species.
