Chrysocraspeda anisocosma

Chrysocraspeda anisocosma
(holotype, Peninsular Malaysia) 
(x 1.16)

See Chrysocraspeda conversata Walker comb. n.

Taxonomic note. The male illustrated above has much more extensive areas of yellow than the female, but has the same tone of pink for the markings and the darker zone at the hindwing marginal angle. Therefore, the association is made with some confidence.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen, a male, is from Labi in the lowlands of Brunei in an area of mixed primary and secondary forest.
