and taxonomic note. The
forewings are oval, a uniform pale reddish brown but slightly darker on the
margin round the apex. The hindwings are grey. The venation, compared to the
type species, has a much more regular arrangement of the five most posterior
veins from the cell of the forewing, and stalking, rather than fusion, of M3 and
CuA1 on the hindwing. The valves are unlike those of punctana, being moderately sclerotised throughout and irregularly
bilobed apically. The aedeagus vesica (not everted) contains numerous moderate
species is only known from the holotype, a male from Pulo Laut, misidentified as
the next species by Hampson (1900).
