species, and the strongly angled hindwing. The female of Eutoea heteroneurata
Guenée is similar but lacks these features.
Taxonomic notes. Assignment of jotaria to Calletaera is tentative, as
discussed in the generic description.
Geographical range. Sundaland, Sulawesi.
Habitat preference. The species is uncommon, encountered on the Mulu
survey in dipterocarp forest and lower montane forest on G. Mulu. Other material
seen is also from both lowland and montane localities.
