Pseudodirades transgrisea Holloway comb. n. 
Epiplema transgrisea Holloway, 1976: 86.

Pseudodirades transgrisea (holotype)

This is a much larger species than Leucoplema ruptifascia Warren comb. n. though of similar colour. The forewing medial band is entire though centrally constricted. The hindwing is more uniform, finely speckled, with faint, fine, angled fasciae.

Taxonomic notes. The juxta and valves of the male genitalia are as in the generic description, though the latter are more strongly ornamented than in the type species.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The unique specimen was taken at 1760m on G. Kinabalu.
