Diduga annutata Hampson
Diduga annulata Hampson, 1900, Cat. Lepid.
Phalaenae Br. Mus., 2: 539.
This is one
of the paler brown species with dark brown fasciae, the postmedial irregularly
but strongly sinuous, and strong stigmata, the reniform a small circle. The male
antennae are bipectinate.
genitalia resemble those of the holotype except the aedeagus is shorter. In the
abdomen, the apodemes of the eighth tergite are well separate rather than fused
in a ‘Y’ and there are conspicuous hair pencils on the intersegmental
membrane that were not noted in the holotype. Further material is needed to
assess the conspecificity of the Bornean population with that from Sumbawa.
Bornean specimens are male from about 1600m on G. Kinabalu.
