See the generic description.
species of similar facies have the medial and postmedial fasciae both
narrow, entire, with opposite curvature such that they are closest at one-third
from the dorsum where a diffuse grey shade forms a bridge btween them. The
submarginal is dark, punctate.
The association of the females
is tentative as, although the forewing facies is very similar, there are small
ridges of raised scales on the costa associated with the medial band and
The holotype male is from the
island of Labuan. A further male (in ZM, Univ. Amsterdam) was taken at 300m in
riverine forest on Tawau Hill, Sabah. Three females were taken during the Mulu
survey, two from dipterocarp forest at 250m on the limestone G. Api and one from
alluvial forest. A fourth female was taken in the understorey of secondary
forest at Bukit Atur near the Danum Valley Field Centre.
