Mithuna fuscivena
(x 1.30)

The species resembles Lambula pallida (see Lambula pallida Hampson) in size and colour, but the forewings are more oblong in shape, and lack any punctate black fasciation. The five (cf. three) veins of the radial branching system are also diagnostic.

Geographical range. Sri Lanka, Borneo, Java, Sulawesi (van Eecke, 1930).

Habitat preference. Several specimens were taken by Doherty on Pulo Laut off S.E. Borneo in lowland localities.
