Cleora onycha

This species and C. tenebrata have the ground colour more strongly suffused with brownish grey than others of the Carecomotis group, giving a more uniform dull brown-grey appearance. In onycha the discal spots are less prominent and the pale spot at the centre of the forewing margin much more so.

Taxonomic notes. Fletcher (1953) also includes description of numerous subspecies.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya to Lesser Sundas and New Guinea.

Habitat preference. Few specimens have been taken in recent surveys: three at low altitudes in the G. Mulu National Park in forest on limestone and in regenerating alluvial forest; one at 1930m on G. Kinabalu.
