(holotype, UM Oxford)

Diagnosis and taxonomic note. This is a small species with narrow forewings and, on the underside, a white spot or spots near the forewing apex. The forewing ground is white, with dark blackish brown markings that are more extensive and more irregular than in Oglasa and more clearly defined than in most Chorsia except the next species: three approximately triangular ones along the costa; an oblique, slightly brownish bar on the dorsum opposite the central costal triangle; more general dark greyish marbling in the marginal zone that contains a narrow and irregular submarginal of the white ground colour. See also the next four species.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The holotype was taken by A.R. Wallace in Sarawak, probably in the lowlands. The species has not been recorded in recent surveys.
