Swinhoe stat. rev. & comb.

and taxonomic note. This
is another taxon revived from synonymy with the Javan senara Moore (see "Barsine"
porphyrea Snellen stat. rev. & comb.n.). It is smaller than porphyrea
or senara, a yellowish orange, with grey fasciation on the forewing,
the three main fasciae being broad and edged finely with red. The male genitalia
have valves intermediate between those of porphyrea and senara, the
apex having a small lobe between the costal angle and the distal saccular spine.
The aedeagus vesica has only one group of larger spines. The anellus/aedeagus
apex fusion is flanked by a pair of patches of spines as in the other two
the holotype and three other specimens are known, taken from lowland localities:
Kuching in Sarawak; Busan in E. Borneo.
