Diagnosis. The male generally resembles the more transparent Amata species
such as decorata Walker, but has the scent fold basal on the cubital vein
from which extends a straight black line towards the apex: anterior to this line
the cell lacks a cross-vein to a narrow transparent zone which extends almost
from the base of the wing to the apex. In the female (illustrated by Seitz
(1912-1913)) the secondary sexual characters are absent, also the black line
from cubital vein to apex, but the forewing cell is long, and the space distal
to it also abnormally long.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. The species is only known from a specimen of each sex
from G. Kinabalu.
