Eudocima discrepans

Diagnosis. The forewings are grey with a series of diffuse, darker, brownish arcs traversing them. There are irregular greenish patches subtornally, associated with the reniform and, in particular, subbasally at the costa. Many specimens have two white sagittate marks just distal to the postmedial centrally.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, W. China, Thailand, Sundaland.

Habitat preference. Four specimens have been taken at 1760m, 1930m and 2600m on G. Kinabalu. There is a fifth taken in recent surveys in Brunei from an area with swamp forest almost at sea level at Ulu Belait. There is also older material from G. Marapok and G. Kinabalu without precise data.
