Hemithea krakenaria sp. n.  

Hemithea krakenaria (holotype)

10mm. See H. neptunaria above. The male genitalia are distinguished by a saccular process that is very narrow except at its junction with the sacculus where it is expanded. The dorsal flap is large. A Javan specimen (slide 17451) is similar but with the saccular process more robust and of more even thickness.

Holotype  SABAH: 5m[iles] S. of Mt. Trus Madi, 1800ft. 18-28.viii.1977 (M.E. Bacchus) BM geometrid slide 17462.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The holotype is possibly from hill dipterocarp forest, given the altitude at which it was taken.
