Diagnosis. This is a small species marked in vinous grey on a pale yellow ground as
illustrated. The Plutodes-like apical and basal patches of the
forewing are well separated by a band of the ground colour, unlike in the
larger species discussed next where it is always divided by a dark 'bridge'
between the two patches.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The only specimen is the holotype male from the
Matang Road in Sarawak.
