Teulisna divisa Walker comb. n.
Hypoprepia divisa Walker, 1862, J. Linn. Soc. (Zool.), 6:102.

Teulisna divisa (in USNM)
(x 1.32)

Diagnosis. The facies is somewhat Asura-like as in nebulosa, but the grey streaks are in the spaces rather than on the veins, and the central band is narrower, evenly curved rather than zig-zag.

Taxonomic note. T. setiniformis Hampson comb. n. (Java) has somewhat similar facies and similar male genitalia, and is certainly congeneric if not conspecific.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. Older material is from lowland Sarawak and from G. Kinabalu. More recently, two specimens have been taken at about 1620m on G. Kinabalu and a third at 1000m on G. Mulu. There is material in the USNM from 1530m on G. Kinabalu, just south of Kundasang.
