Abraxas invasata

Compared with the next species, the forewing discal patch is usually separate, rarely fused with the costal black marking and hardly ever with the postmedial marking. On the hindwing the submarginal spots are rounded rather than angular, and less frequently united with the marginal ones. The names in Holloway (1976) were transposed in error on Curbia Warren.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. Records have only been from G. Kinabalu and from G. Api in Sarawak in lower and upper montane zones.

Biology. The species mostly flies by day but may also come to light at night.
