robusta Holloway comb. n.
Eressa robusta Holloway, 1976: 1.
Diagnosis. This differs from the next species in the greyer tone to the dark areas
of the wings, the more even width to the forewing border (the more anterior
transparent patches extend further distally than the central ones rather than
vice versa), and the abdomen is ringed pale at two thirds (the lateral pale
patches extend distally to this ring and not beyond, but form a complete row in
the next species).
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. All specimens have been taken at light at night on G.
Kinabalu at altitudes between 1500m and 2000m. The species is rare.
