Barsine lucibilis
(x 1.38)

This and the next two species have forewings with a longitudinally striate pattern with transverse grey fasciae, grey along the veins distal to the postmedial, and red in the spaces everywhere. In lucibilis the postmedial is entire, more regularly curved, the curvature strongest towards the costa. Spining in the aedeagus vesica appears to be variable.

Taxonomic note. The relationships of this species were discussed by Holloway (1982: 213).

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is a frequent species of lowland forest, occurring also in disturbed habitats and up to 1000m. In Brunei it was found to be particularly frequent in dry heath forest in the Telisai area.
