Diagnosis.
The yellow markings of the wings become paler with the distance from the thorax. The hindwings are apically produced and marked only narrowly with yellow at the base, with a small spot costally and more distally (both enlarged in the female). The abdomen is ringed broadly yellow basally and at two thirds, with two narrower rings in between. The genitalia have the aedeagus vesica strongly bifid, each narrow lobe bearing cornuti.

Geographical range. Borneo.
