Sauris coalita Prout
Sauris coalita Prout, 1931, Novit. zool., 37: 28.

Sauris coalita (in USNM)

The facies is generally similar to that of the previous few species but the fasciation is much heavier, almost black with a slight bluish tinge. A particular feature is the way the slightly broader pair of pale fasciae in the postmedial area are flexed towards the tornus, becoming distinctly paler at that point. The hindwings and abdomen are medium to dark grey.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The single Bornean specimen seen (in USNM) is from 1560m in the Park Headquarters area of G. Kinabalu.
