Eois phaneroscia
(x 1.33)

Diagnosis. This is the smallest species with strongly fasciated wings. The basal half of both wings is only lightly fasciated, separated from the more strongly fasciated distal half by a straight boundary. The distal red is most intense at this boundary.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Sundaland.

Habitat preference. The species is infrequent but recorded from a wide range of vegetation: lowland alluvial forest, hill dipterocarp forest at 500m (on G. Mulu), and in lower montane forest (900m) and scrubby montane forest (1200m) on the limestone G. Api.
