Streptoperas luteata Hampson
Streptoperas luteata Hampson, 1895, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond., 1895: 289.

Streptoperas luteata

The two species in Streptoperas are very similar in appearance. The shape of the hindwing, with the margin smooth convex anterior to the angle and shallowly concave posterior to it, and the multiple crenulate fasciation on pale yellow between the postmedial and the margin are diagnostic for luteata.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. Of the only two Bornean specimens seen, one is without altitude data, collected by Waterstradt in the Kinabalu area, and the other is from lowland forest at 75m near Labi in Brunei.
