Diagnosis and taxonomic note.
The species is slightly smaller than the previous
two and has dark, ochreous orange-brown, uniform forewings crossed by straight
and well separate blackish brown antemedial and postmedial fasciae. The synonymy
brings together taxa of this facies type. The specimen illustrated as
trilineata by Kobes (1997) is probably
Holloway, but that illustrated as
Roepke (Plate VIII: 284) could be trilineata. One paratype of
trilineata is not conspecific (see the previous species).
Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.
Habitat preference. The species is infrequent in montane forest, recorded
from 900m to 1930m.
