Fodina sumatrensis Prout
Fodina sumatrensis Prout, 1924, Bull. Hill Mus. Witley, 1: 425.

Fodina sumatrensis

Diagnosis. The creamy white bands and markings on the dark brown of the forewing are slightly reminiscent of those of some Heoeugorna Hampson species, but the yellow and dark brown hindwings are distinctive.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Most records are from the lowlands. Two older specimens are from Samarinda in Kalimantan. One was taken at 30-60m in forest at Labi in Brunei. Three out of four specimens from the Mulu survey were from dipterocarp forest on limestone at 250-270m on the slopes of G. Api, but the fourth was from lower montane forest at 1000m on G. Mulu. The species has also been taken in lowland forest of the Barito Ulu of Kalimantan Tengah.
