Nephelomilta diehli Volynkin & Černý, 2018  

( Figs 8–10 View FIGURES 1–10 , 18–20 View FIGURES 18–20 )

Type material examined. Holotype ( Figs 8 View FIGURES 1–10 , 19 View FIGURES 18–20 ): male, “ Indonesia, N. Sumatra, 15 km NO [NE] Prapat, HW 4, 1150m, 3.–6.I.1994, leg. Karel Cerny [recte Černý]” / “Slide AV2663 ♂ A. Volynkin ”: ( MWM / ZSM, ex coll. CKC).

Remark. The specimen from southern Borneo Island ( Fig. 10 View FIGURES 1–10 ) is somewhat smaller and has somewhat nar- rower forewing (the length and width ratio is 2.4:1 vs. 2.2: 1 in the Sumatran populations) with thinner pattern than the nominate populations from Sumatra. It also displays slight differences in the male genitalia ( Fig. 20 View FIGURES 18–20 ) from the specimens from Sumatra ( Fig. 18, 19 View FIGURES 18–20 ), viz. the somewhat narrower apical lobe of the costa, the somewhat narrower ampulla and the somewhat less elongate subbasal diverticulum of the vesica (ca. 1/4 of the phallus length vs. 1/2 of the phallus length in the Sumatran populations). Probably the population from Borneo represents a separated subspecies, but to describe it examination of additional materials is necessary.

Distribution. The species is known from the islands of Sumatra ( Indonesia) ( Volynkin & Černý 2018) and Borneo (Kalimantan Selatan Province of Indonesia, a new record).
