Stictoptera repleta

The subbasal black spot of the forewing, set in a zone of pale ground colour, distinguishes this species from congeners. A female is illustrated; males have the forewing ground colour browner. In the male genitalia the uncus is slightly sigmoid and the juxta is biarcuate. There is no polymorphism.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Three specimens have been taken in lowland dipterocarp forest (on G. Mulu and at Labi, Brunei), one in dry heath forest at Telisai, Brunei, and singletons in lower montane forest on G. Api, and upper montane forest on Bukit Retak and Bukit Pagon, Brunei.
