Diagnosis.
The two Bornean species of Padenia are most reliably distinguished from the male genitalia, but duplicana has the more distal forewing band generally more sigmoid. The costal process of the male genitalia is trifid in duplicana, but bifid in the next species; it is also more evenly curved and tapering in duplicana.

Geographical range. Sundaland, Philippines, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. The species is common in a range of lowland forest types.
