 Note: Very similar to Eublemma parva (Hübner, [1808]), and doubtfully separated from it through images; hence provisionally identifed as cf. Eublemma parva, which seems to be an extralimital species from Europe, though listed by Hampson from Bombay; Europe. FBI, Hampson, Vol. 2, pg. 341, # 2121. Hampson states the postmedial line is less excurved in parva. European E. parva have the post-medial angled just below the costa & meeting it at right angle, whereas E. rivula & the E. parva (?) from India eastwards (hence possibly rivula) have the post-medial meeting the costa obliquely.
