Calletaera jotaria

The dark brown, arcuate, forewing discal marking distinguishes this 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.
