    Erebids again.

    On a side note, I was wondering, under what circumstances would one decide to use aff. or cf. ?
    For the longest time I've been using cf. when I have two materials to compare with , whilst I use aff. when there's only a single piece of material that matches closely. Is aff. a term used strictly by authoritarians, or is it also available for laymen's utilisation?

    72) Unknown


    73) Lutzugia trigonalis
    An extension for this species I'm presuming


    74) Avatha complens ?


    75-77) Ercheia spp
    >75 & 76 I'm pretty sure are E. cyllaria
    >77 has me swaying towards E. multilinea; rosy fawn and cream reniforms

    The terms aff. & cf. can be used by anybody although they are mostly used by taxonomists.

    aff. ie affinis or affinity means closely related to.
    eg. If you put a aff. x. IT means it is similar to ax, likely belongs to the same species group , but it is not sp x as far as you know.

    cf. ie conferre or confer means to compare.
    If you put a cf. x, it means it is very similar to ax with some minor differences & could be the same species, x.


    65. Parapoynx villidalis is right.

    66. Tatobotys cf. biannularis.

    67 unknown.

    68. Maxates coelataria is right.


    I have no image of Voliba spp.
    The description say whitish irrorated with brown & restricted to the Papuan region.

    69 Uncertain. Likely Jodis sp.
    The medial band is broad such that the very irregular postmedial line is set near the outer margin. This is seen in several Jodis.

    70. Albinospila cf. floresaria
    The description matched it well.

    This example from Australia is paler.

    70. Hyposidra infixaria is right ; variable.

    Default ID Correction.

    31 is not Alex palparia but of a different genus.
    The postmedial is set too far out to be Alex.

    73, Lutzugia trigonalis is right. Single species.

    75, 76 as you say Ercheia cyllaria Dark narrow reniform ;HW subtornal white spots, inner one larger than outer one.

    76. as stated, E. multilinea.

    69 Review.


    This is very close to this ID'ed as Maxates variegata.. which is a Bornean endemic. (stated as similar to M. melancholica)
    If this below is correctly IDed than 69 is probably Maxates melancholica, which is found in Malaya.

    The colour of 69 is also appropriately dark & melamcholic.

    Thanks for the elucidation on the terms

    According to Kendrick, R.C's paper on Hong Kong's lepido-fauna in 2002, Tatobotys is a junior synonym of Voliba, first established by Walker,1866 and was later revised by Butler, 1880.


    More Geos

    72) Traminda aventiara ?


    73) Derambila lumenaria ?
    MoB describes this species to be distinguished from its congeners (Bornean representatives at least) by the ''prominent black dots along the wing margins''


    74) Borbacha pardaria ?


    75) Fascellina aff. quadrata
    My first two guesses were F. castanea, even F. chromataria. Subsequently, a quick jaunt to BOLD systems led me to my current guess.

    More ''erebids''

    76) Pantura rufifrons ?


    77) Ommatophora luminosa ?


    78) Hadennia mysalis ?


    79) Mecodina lanceola ?


    81) Cerynea sp ?


    82 &83) Unknown
    I have seen what appears to be 82's relative, and possibly 83 on the cover of MoB's volume 17. But alas, the perennial dog of Noctuidae continues to wag its tail, rendering color plates inaccessible for public viewing
    >82 appears to resemble members of the genus Catada
