Dalima subflavata

Dalima subflavata

This is a large yellow species that is variably irrorated and fasciated with pale reddish brown, the female with more diffuse and extensive irroration and additional irroration of pale grey. The fasciae are not dissimilar in their course and positioning to those of patularia, but the forewing medial is represented at the dorsum by a short black bar broken by a pale line along the anal vein.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Java, Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is the only Dalima found more commonly in the Bomean lowlands: it was found to be common in kerangas forest at 150m on a river terrace west of the Melinau Gorge in the G. Mulu National Park, but specimens were also taken in hill dipterocarp forest at 500m on G. Mulu and at 250m (dipterocarp forest) and 900m (lower montane forest) on the limestone G. Api. In Brunei the species has mostly been taken in hill dipterocarp forest in Ulu Temburong, but also at Labi and on the coast at Seria. A few specimens have been recorded from upper montane forest on Bukit Retak.
