Miliona pendleburyi

The orange band on the hindwing is submarginal, and does not extend right to the costa, stopping at two thirds from the dorsum.

Taxonomic notes. The presence of a slight grey green iridescence within the apical black zone of the forewing is seen also in dulitana. The two species also have very similar female genitalia, characterised by a strongly sclerotised, bilobed lamella antevaginalis. They are probably sister-species.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. Two females only have been taken, both from G. Kinabalu, one at 1760m and the other at about 1600m.

Biology. The adult flies by day.
