Warren, 1896, Novit. zool., 3: 370.
Diagnosis. This and the next species, C. remutans Prout, are very similar,
both sexes resembling the female of C. faganaria (below). C.
croceomarginata is smaller, with the wings a greyer red that is less angled
distally into the yellow margin, especially on the hindwing where the margin
itself is less angled. The discal spots are more definite in C. remutans, white
on the hindwing, blackish on the forewing. In the male genitalia C.
croceomarginata has a narrower uncus and a shorter, rather tongue-like
process at the apex of the aedeagus.
Chrysocraspeda. faganaria (Java)
Geographical range. Java, Sumatra, Singapore, Borneo.
Habitat preference. Both Bornean specimens are from lowland localities:
50 miles inland up the Segama river, Sabah; 250m in dipterocarp forest on
the lower slopes of the limestone G. Api, G. Mulu National Park.
