Dasyboarmia delineata

See the previous species.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is far commoner than subpilosa in Borneo, recorded abundantly in lower montane forest (1000m on G. Mulu and 500m on G. Api) during the Mulu survey and over an altitude range of 1200-2100m on G. Kinabalu.

Biology. Singh (1953) recorded a species tentatively identified as delineata feeding on Carissa (Apocynaceae), but, given the restriction of delineata to Borneo, this record undoubtedly refers to another member of the complex.
