Euphalacra discipuncta Holloway comb. n.  
Ectothyris discipuncta Holloway, 1976: 92.

Euphalacra discipuncta

The wing pattern of brown on rather translucent white is rather irregular. The brown discal spots of both wings are within translucent areas, that of the hindwing being very much smaller than that of the forewing. The marginal shade of the forewing is stepped near the tornus, a feature better observed on the underside.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The holotype was from Mesilau at 1500m on the Pinosuk Plateau of G. Kinabalu. Material taken subsequently consists of four specimens from the western end of the Melinau Gorge, Sarawak: one from a bank (130m) between alluvial forest and a river terrace with heath forest; three from dipterocarp forest at 250m on the lower slopes of the limestone G. Api.
