Eugoa trifasciata Snellen stat. rev. 
Lithosia trifasciata Snellen, 1880, in Veth, Midden-Sumatra 4(2): 37.

Eugoa trifasciata
(x 1.56)

This species could be confused with trifascia but has browner hindwings, a more angled basal edge to the dorsal component of the postmedial ‘hour-glass’, and a more linear, unbroken submarginal.

Taxonomic note. The taxon trifasciata Moore (praeocc.), replaced by trifasciella Strand, represents a good species from Sri Lanka. It had been placed as a synonym of bipunctata by Hampson (1900).

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo

Habitat preference. The species has been taken infrequently in a wide range of lowland forest types, including heath forest and regenerating alluvial forest. It has not been recorded at altitudes above 300m.
