Batracharta lempkei Kobes, 1989, Heterocera Sumatrana 2: 161.

Batracharta lempkei

Diagnosis. The size and coloration is similar to that of the previous two species, but lempkei is easily distinguished by the basal indigo zone which is more conspicuous, with a transverse and slightly oblique distal boundary that, when close to the dorsum, turns basad to converge almost asymptotically with it. There is no more distal patch.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Thailand, Borneo, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. Five specimens were taken during the Mulu survey, four from alluvial forest at 70m and one from hill dipterocarp forest on G. Mulu at 500m.

There are also two specimens from Samarinda on the coast of Kalimantan.
