chlorocampsis Prout comb. n.
1926, Sarawak Mus. J., 3:185.
Holloway, 1976: 68.
Diagnosis. The labial palps are long and slender, darkish brown as in coelica
and sayata Holloway, but there are distinctive facies
features of the wings: the fasciae within the forewing medial zone are finely
and clearly defined, often with paler areas present; the discal spot is weak;
the pale band distal to the postmedial is regularly and obtusely angled
centrally, and the marginal pale area distal to its angle, when not obscured, is
asymmetrically triangular. The hindwing on both surfaces has four distinct
darker grey fasciae on medium grey, only the outer one (postmedial) being
Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia.
Habitat preference. Though described from G. Murud in Sarawak, the
species is rare on Bornean mountains except for G. Kinabalu where it ranges from
2110m to 3150m, being commonest at 2600m. On G. Mulu it was taken once at 1780m
and twice at 2360m.
