Sundadoxa multidentata Prout comb. n.  
Hypodoxa multidentata Prout, 1916, Novit. zool., 23: 8.

Sundadoxa multidentata

See the generic account. The species resembles a rather 'dirty' Pingasa species, but can be distinguished by the dark bar of raised scales just interior to the hindwing discal mark and, in the males, similar raised dark scales at the base of the forewing. Pingasa species also have raised scales but these are in a different configuration, usually not conspicuously darker. (Pingasa Moore)

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Recent surveys have recorded the species infrequently in lowland and lower montane forests, a number of the Mulu survey records being from the limestone G. Api.
