Zamarada xanthyala Hampson,
1896, Fauna Brit. India, Moths, 4: 553.
Peratophyga xanthyala Hampson;
Holloway, 1976: 84.
Diagnosis. The facies is similar to that of Zamarada species but
distinguished by a brighter red colour to the borders which extends down the
dorsums of fore- and hindwings. The interior margin of the border is sinuous
rather than with a single indentation, the sinuousity marked by a greyish band
that is edged red on each side. There is a yellowish subapical spot to the
Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.
Habitat preference. Records have been made in forested localities from
the lowland to the upper montane zone, with perhaps the greatest frequency in
lower montane forest at about 1000m.
