Diduga pectinifer Hampson
Diduga pectinifer Hampson, 1900, Cat. Lepid.
Phalaenae Br. Mus., 2: 540.
Fig.7c: Diduga pectinifer Hampson
This and the
next three species are very similar in the forewings, pectinifer
males having a shallowly curved costa and a more distinctive inner white
edge to the yellow border. The hindwing has the dorsal zone invested with rough
hair above. The male antennae are narrowly bipectinate. The male genitalia are
of the slender, tapering type.
The only definite specimens are the holotype and one other from Pulo Laut, a low
lying island at the south-east of Borneo. A female from lowland forest at
Semongok near Kuching may also be this species or ciliata sp.n.
