Diagnosis. See the previous species. The abdomen has rufous stripes laterally as in
the next species, but not in ghosha. The facies of the upper side of the
wings is much as in ghosha. The male genitalia have a narrower valve with
the most dense setation central rather than apical. The anellus is much less
scobinate. The female lacks a basal sclerotisation in the bursa, and the signum
is an elongate band.
Geographical range. Java, Borneo; New Guinea, Bismarcks (ssp promulgata).
Habitat preference. Only a single Bornean female has been seen (slide
18719), from the Penrisen mountains of Sarawak. No altitude is given.
