Gogana semibrevis

Gogana ?semibrevis

Only the holotype male is known from Borneo. The colour is similar to that of turbinifera but the brownish suffusion is richer, and stronger in the centre of the medial zone of the forewing.

Geographical range. Borneo, ?Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat preference. The type locality is at about 1000m in the Poeh Mts in Sarawak.

Biology. Larvae that may be referable to this species (adult not dissected) have been reared from Calamus manan in Peninsular Malaysia by H. Steiner. One is illustrated above. It is typical of the kerara group, but the black lines of the inner pair on the head are adjacent, and those of the outer pair well separate, curved round the side of the head.
