Amata cinctelisa sp. n.
16-18mm. This species differs from the previous three in having complete
yellow rings to the abdominal segments between those ringed in elisa; it
thus resembles typical Javan wallacei. The male genitalia have the
aedeagus vesica only weakly ornamented as in elisa. The valves are
symmetrical, tapering, only weakly setose, though the basal costal processes are
asymmetric as in wallacei and elisoides, the right one flexed
centrally at a right-angle. The uncus is quadrate, slightly excavate apically.
