Swinhoe, 1902, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond., 1902: 661.
Diagnosis. The facies is somewhat as in females of C. faganaria (below)
and both sexes of the next two species, particularly the centrally angled distal
border of reddish grey area of the wings, almost dividing the narrow yellow
margin. It is distinguished by the elongate white discal mark on the hindwing
and the fine, arcuate, pale postmedials of both wings.
Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.
Habitat preference. In recent surveys two specimens have been taken at
Badas in Brunei, an area of lowland forest, including swamp forest. Most older
material is also from lowland localities (Sandakan and near Pontianak) apart
from one specimen with no altitude data from Mt Marapok.
