Amblychia cavimargo

Amblychia cavimargo

This species is paler than hymenaria, lacking the white bar on the forewing. The hindwing is diagnostically excavate at the margin between Rs and M1. The female is more extensively whitened except for a broadly triangular one at the forewing apex.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is a montane species. On Kinabalu it was frequent from 1500m to 1930m, but during the Mulu survey the three specimens were from lower montane forest (1000m on G. Mulu, 900m on G. Api). A single specimen was taken at 1618m on Bukit Retak, Brunei.
