@pierotoni10 - I can clearly see the two Probithia IDs I have agreed but I am less clear about this one. Based on the diagnostic info on Moths of Borneo (http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-11/Eutoeini/eutoeini_2_1.php) this one seems intermediate between P. exclusa and P. imprimata because this one has a darker base colour and the costal markings are not clearly defined. However, the medial costal mark is entire (rather than two separate marks). So P. exclusa seems more likely. I looked at the specimens on the NHM data portal before posting my observations. They do not seem to follow the diagnostic info on MoB and I was left not knowing how to determine the species.

In fact, I too had the same doubts. Thank you
