Catoria olivescens Moore; Prout, 1929: 134.
This species and S. tamsi Prout are very similar, but olivescens is marked with
a duller brown, less heavily, and with more brown clouding between the fasciae.
On both surfaces the discal spots are much more prominent, darker in tamsi. The
male genitalia are diagnostic.
Himalaya, Taiwan, Sundaland, Sulawesi; S. Moluccas (ssp. longistigma Prout)
Four specimens were taken during the Mulu survey, from kerangas, from forest at
low elevations on limestone, and from lower and upper montane forest on G. Mulu.
