Comibaena viridifimbria (Warren, 1906)
STATUS: A rare species, just recently recorded for Indonesian New Guinea. It very much resembles Argyrocosma consobrina but most distinguishing are the small and equally sized marginal dots on the hindwing in viridifimbria, while in consobrina these are irregular sized, and the black discal spots in viridifimbria.
