(x 1.33)

Diagnosis. This is a small species marked in vinous grey on a pale yellow ground as illustrated. The Plutodes-like apical and basal patches of the forewing are well separated by a band of the ground colour, unlike in the larger species discussed next where it is always divided by a dark 'bridge' between the two patches.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The only specimen is the holotype male from the Matang Road in Sarawak.
