Note: This is  probably Lymantria obfuscata Walker, 1865 as it has a fuscous marginal border on HW, which detersa lacks. Moreover, detersa is known from S & W India. The other similar species, L. incerta has a chequered HW, which this lacks. Lymantria obfuscata is known from N. India. Provisionally identified.
