Diagnosis.
The facies is similar to that of aequalis and the next species, but the postmedial is more of an hour-glass shape, the antemedial of relatively even width, and the submarginal is broad, diffuse, with a break at one-third from the costa.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Records during the Mulu survey were from lowland to lower montane forest (up to 1000m) on both G. Mulu and the limestone G. Api, with a few specimens taken in wet heath (kerangas) forest.
