Corymica latimarginata

This and the next species differ from Bornean congeners in having red margins strongly marked on the upperside. In latimarginata the margin is continuous on both wings, internally excavate centrally on the forewing. In pardalota the red is restricted to the anterior half of the forewing, and the species is very much smaller.

Geographical range. Sundaland.

Habitat preference. The species is uncommon, with most specimens taken in lowland forest. The exception is a male from 1620m on G. Kinabalu.
