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