Seitz, 1912-1913: 63; Holloway, 1976: 1.
Diagnosis. This is a small species with transparent patches on the wings in similar
positions to those of the elisa group but with the discal one of the
forewing distinctly smaller than the distal and posterior ones. Each segment is
narrowly ringed yellow, each ring constricted or broken dorsally.
Taxonomic notes. The male genitalia show this species to belong to Amata rather
than Ceryx. The specimens dissected were too damaged for the genitalia to
Geographical range. Borneo.
