Heliosia Hampson

Type species: jucunda Walker, Australia.

As indicated above, the male genitalia of the type species of Heliosia have features in common with Narosodes. The facies is very different, however, being dull yellowish with two transverse blackish bands on the forewing and a border of the same colour on the hindwing. The male forewing lacks the scale tuffs discussed under Narosodes. The genus contains several Australian and New Guinea species and a few Oriental ones. It needs revision. The single Bornean species included has some features in common with "Narosodes" hampsoni, as discussed below.
