Descriptions of inaptaria on mothsofborneo not, because Geography available for this species - the Himalayas. Identified only difference - slightly curved corners apekalnye VC from korintjiensis . But copy of inaptaria just from Thailand. If you compare the photo with copies to boldsystems, then, perhaps, closer even inaptaria
