Gogana streptoperoides sp. n.
Gogana streptoperoides (holotype)
13mm. The forewing facies and general coloration is similar to that of Streptoperas
Hampson species, particularly S. crenelata Swinhoe
However, the forewing is less falcate, uniformly paler yellowish fawn,
pinkish distal to the postmedial that consists of two brown lines, the exterior
one fading posteriorly, the interior one fading anteriorly. The hindwing
coloration is similar, but with the scale patch typical of the genus and
fasciation only over the dorsal half. The distal margins of the wings are
darkened. The male abdomen lacks coremata. The saccus is short. The gnathus is
apically expanded into a rhomboidal shape, with rounded angles, a definitive
characteristic not seen in any other Bornean congener.
