Diagnosis.
See the generic account, particularly with reference to the elliptical mark near the centre of the forewing costa.

Taxonomic note. The aberrant male specimen with a white abdomen noted from Sumatra by Hampson (1900) and described as sumatrana by Draudt has not been located; it is probably an Adites Moore species (see below).

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat preference. This is a lowland species, encountered in frequency up to 600m in coastal, heath and dipterocarp forests, often where there has been disturbance and secondary growth.
