Diagnosis and taxonomic note.
See the previous species. The forewing fasciation and the broad blackish border to the hindwing are diagnostic. The male abdomen has features in common with crustata, such as narrow, flimsy coremata on the eighth sternite and tapering valve apices. In lineatus the valve apex is more complex, with a subapical angle and two more basal marginal spurs. The aedeagus vesica has four large, appressed quadrate spines like molar teeth. There are minor differences in the genitalia of the Sulawesi subspecies (Roepke, 1946b).

Geographical range. Sundaland, Philippines; Sulawesi (ssp. calligenioides).

Habitat preference. The species is infrequent in lowland forest up to 600m.
