Diagnosis.
See Vamuna remelana Moore comb. rev. There is some sexual dimorphism, with males having browner forewings, and yellower hindwings with more extensive black borders.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Records have all been from the Kinabalu area where the species is very much rarer than remelana.
