Diagnosis. The hindwing tail is strongly produced and the wing margins are
generally more crenulate than in congeners. The antemedial band in the hindwing
is interrupted centrally (entire in lucidaria). Both wings have a
submarginal row of pale marks and a darker brown edging to the interior of the
Taxonomic notes. No genitalic differences could be found to distinguish Sundanian
specimens from those from N. India, hence vitraria is placed as a
synonym. K. extranotata Prout (New Guinea) is also closely related, but
the aedeagus has a stout spine or cornutus at its apex.
Geographical range. Oriental tropics to Japan, Sulawesi, S. Moluccas.
Habitat preference. Most material has been taken in the lower montane
zone at around 1000m, but a few specimens have been recorded in the lowlands and
from the upper montane zone just below 2000m.
