Necyopa chloana (holotype)

This is the largest Bornean species, the forewings coloured and marked much as in ioge but with the fasciation more broken. The hindwings and underside are only lightly fasciated marginally, lacking the solid borders of the other species. The male hindwing is not strongly modified.

Taxonomic note. The facies and male genitalia of chloana, described from G. Murud, Sarawak, and refrenata, described from G. Kinabalu, are identical.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The species ranges from 1930m to 2600m in the upper montane zone of both localities where it is recorded. It therefore has the highest altitude preference of Bornean members of the genus.
