, 14mm. This species resembles tricuspida very
closely in both wing shape, facies and male genitalia, and was originally marked
down merely as a variant of that species, lacking the prominent creamy white,
bilobed patch across the apical zone of the forewing. The forewings in both are
relatively deep and the hindwings of a greater relative area than in other
Bornean species. However, the submarginals are broader and more continuous on
both fore- and hindwings and less strongly angled on the former, particularly at
the tornus. Females (one from Bali) have a small cream-coloured bar on the
forewing costa just distad from the postmedial.
