Derambila gertraudae

This species is somewhat similar to the propages group but slightly larger, with deeper forewings and somewhat finer, more delicate, sinuous postmedials. The submarginals are entire, running evenly parallel to the margins which are conspicuously punctate with black. The ovipositor lobes are extended, telescopic as in lumenaria.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo, N.E. Himalaya.

Habitat preference. Both Bornean specimens are from G. Kinabalu, but the altitude is not specified. Sumatran material is all from just above 1000m (Sommerer, 1995).
