(x 1.73)


Fig.6d: Garudinistis eburneana Walker


Diagnosis.
See the generic description: there are three brown bands on the forewing, rather than two as in Garudinia.

Geographical range. Borneo, also Sumatra, Java (van Eecke, 1930).

Habitat preference. This appears to be a rare but ecologically versatile species. In recent surveys singletons have been taken from: lower montane forest at 1000m on G. Mulu; coastal forest and secondary vegetation at Seria in Brunei; on a boat within mangrove in the Bay of Brunei; lowland dipterocarp forest at the Danum Valley Field Centre in Sabah.
