Callopistria albistriga

The hindwing has its basal half white with a broad brown border; the submarginal white flecks of the forewing are reduced except for the central one which is prominent. See also the generic account.

Taxonomic note.
The above combination renders the Sri Lankan albistriga Hampson a secondary homonym, for which the name Callopistria lanka nom. nov. is proposed.

Geographical range
Sumatra, Java, Bali, Borneo.

Habitat preference.
The species is infrequent in lowland rain forest.
