Heterolocha pyreniata

This is a smaller species than the next, with the forewing antemedial interrupted into costal and subdorsal patches rather than entire. The hindwing fascia is straighter, parallel to, or diverging from the margin as it approaches the costa, rather than converging prior to a slight flexure basad subcostally. The forewing discal spot is more obviously pale-centred. The apex of the forewing has a small but conspicuously darker triangular patch.

Geographical range. Sundaland.

Habitat preference. The species is rare in Borneo, taken mostly in lowland localities, the highest record being from 1000m on G. Matang.
