Amata borneogena Obraztsov
Amata borneogena Obraztsov, 1955: 32.

Amata borneogena

The yellow spots of the forewing are more even in size than in either of the next two species. The yellow area of the hindwing encloses a small black spot more or less centrally (not at all in tetragonaria and more anteriorly in prepuncta).

Taxonomic notes. This and the next three species belong to the pfeifferae Moore group as discussed by Obraztsov (1955).

Geographical range. Borneo, Natuna Is.

Habitat preference. The species is rare, known only from two males: the holotype from Mt. Lundu near Kuching, Sarawak; a single male (BM slide 4163) from Bunguran, Natuna Is.
