Bagada poliomera

The extensive whitish borders to forewing costa and dorsum are diagnostic.

Taxonomic notes.
Separation of albinotata as a subspecies is probably unjustified as the facies features used to do so originally appear variable. There are no genitalia differences to justify separation.

Geographical range.
N.E. Himalaya, Hainan, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference.
The only Bornean specimen was taken at 1620m on G. Kinabalu.
