Herbulot, 1987, Lambillionea, 87: 106.
Diagnosis. The forewing margin is obtusely angled, concave anterior to the angle.
The fine yellow postmedials of both wings are similarly angled, but the forewing
antemedial is straight, oblique.
Taxonomic notes. The original description states that baderi is similar in facies
to the Indian C. iole Swinhoe, but has significant
differences in the male genitalia: a bifid uncus; valve processes shorter and
more evenly curved; apical process of aedeagus spiny; sclerotisation of what is
possibly the transtilla.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The holotype was taken at 1200m on the south of G.
Kinabalu at Kundasan. The female illustrated was taken in primary dipterocarp
forest at 10m near the Danum Valley Field Centre.
Biology. Bell (MS) described the larva of the related Indian species C. iole. The
larva is long, thin, cylindrical, slightly thickened anteriorly and posteriorly.
It is smoky black in colour, striated grey longitudinally, with short
dorsolateral and lateral white lines from the anterior margins of each segment
to one third posteriorly. The pale pinkish grey pupa is blunt, square and tinged
yellow anteriorly, with eight hooklets on the cremaster, the apical pair
The larva rests in a perpendicular position, the anterior segments held
free and looped over. The pupa is suspended like that of a pierine butterfly
with girdle and cremastral pad against a stick or leaf.
The host-plant was Eugenia (Myrtaceae)
