( Figs 21–23 View FIGURES 17–23 , 41 View FIGURES 40–43 , 51 View FIGURES 48–53 )

Miltochrista flavodiscalis Talbot, 1926   , The Sarawak Museum journal 3 (2): 138 (Type locality: “[ Sarawak] Mt. Murud, 6000– 6500 feet ”).

Type material examined. Syntype ( Fig. 21 View FIGURES 17–23 ): ♁, “43.24. Mt. Murud , Sarawak, 6000–6500 ft., Nov. 22nd, Dr. E. Mjoberg ” / Miltochrista flavodiscalis Talb.   ♁ H.T.” / round label with a red circle “Type” / “Presented by J.J. Joicey Esq. Brit. Mus. 1931-444” / label with QR-code “ NHMUK010604668 View Materials   ” (Coll. NHMUK).

Other material examined. Series of both sexes from Malaysia, Borneo Island (Sabah and Sarawak) (Colls NHMUK, MWM / ZSM, CKC, ZMB).

Diagnosis. Forewing length is 12–12.5 mm in males and 12.5–13 mm in females. The species is similar externally to B. cruciata   , but differs by its darker forewing ground color with much brighter and more contrast discal yellow spot of forewing, darker, and pale red hindwing with slight yellowish suffusion medially and a well-developed pale yellow broad discal spot. The male and female genitalia are similar to those of B. hreblayi   , the differences are listed in the diagnosis of the latter.

Distribution. Malaysia (Borneo) ( Holloway 2001). The record for Malay Peninsula ( Bucsek 2012) is doubtful and needs confirmation. All externally similar Malay specimens dissected belong to B. cruciata   .
