Catoria olivescens

. 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.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Taiwan, Sundaland, Sulawesi; S. Moluccas (ssp. longistigma Prout)

Habitat preference. 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.
