Cleora biclavata

Diagnosis. C. biclavata, C. propulsaria
Walker, C. contiguata Moore and C. cucullata Fletcher all have dull brown markings on a white ground, and are progressively more heavily marked in the sequence just given. In the first two the intensity of markings within the broad hindwing border is even and in propulsaria they are much more regular and even. In contiguata and cucullata the markings are more intense or more suffused brown over the posterior two thirds. Dissection of male genitalia is recommended for certain identification.

Geographical range. Burma, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Some association with disturbed habitats seems likely, but only three specimens have been taken in recent surveys: at Tuaran in lowland Sabah, in a cultivated area at 1200m on the slopes of G. Kinabalu and at 300m on G. Santubong in Sarawak.
