Bytharia uniformis

The very pale orange-yellow wings with grey borders and forewing costa render this species unmistakable.

Geographical range. Sundaland, Philippines, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. The species is uncommon. Only three specimens were taken during the Mulu survey, one in Gua Payau, a broad forested well in an area of limestone with caves, and the other two at 500m (hill dipterocarp forest) and 1000m (lower montane forest) on the Mulu transect.
