Eumelea rubrifusa

Eumelea rubrifusa

See Eumelea ludovicata Guenée.

Taxonomic notes. The unique holotype of E. lipara West (Luzon) has male genitalia as in rubrifusa. It could represent a uniform brown race or aberration of rubrifusa. A similar bifid uncus is seen in E. isozyges Prout (Mindoro) but this has strong, narrow socii and longer slightly expanding arms to the cross.

Geographical range. Borneo, Philippines; Sulawesi (ssp. multiplagiata Prout).

Habitat preference. All material is from montane localities, Bukit Retak and Bukit Pagon in Brunei, and G. Kinabalu. The Brunei specimens are from 1618-1680m, in upper montane forest. Those from Kinabalu lack altitude data.
