Amata elisa


Diagnosis.
This species is again very similar to wallacei in facies but the segments of the abdomen between the two yellow rings are marked yellow laterally, the yellow extending only weakly or not at all to the dorsum. In the male genitalia the aedeagus vesica spining is less extensive than in the previous two species, the spines smaller. The valves have marginal and apical setation as in elisoides but weaker; the basal costal processes are more or less equal, long, curved.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species is rare in lowland, forest.
