The double triangle of the submarginal is prominent. The medial fascia is nearer the postmedial than the antemedial and is faint over the posterior half. The antemedial also broadens towards the dorsum. The reniform is black centrally.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. All specimens have been taken in upper montane forest, at 1620m on G. Kinabalu, and at similar altitudes on Bukit Pagon and Bukit Retak in Brunei. Four specimens have been noted in all.
