  • Taxonomy

    The holotype of Botys tapsusalis Walker, 1859: 697 from Kalimantan Selatan (Pulo Laut) [a Wallace specimen] is in the NHM. This sp. was previously treated in Polygrammodes Guenée 1854 [a New World genus] by Swinhoe (1892) and Meyrick (1884: 320) before being placed in Noctuelia (LepIndex).
