Hepatica irrorata

Diagnosis. See the previous species.

Taxonomic note. Poole (1989) gave bhagha Swinhoe (N.E. Himalaya, Taiwan) as a synonym of irrorata (and also partially of Ananepa doda), but bhagha seems to have a more uniform, richer brown tone to the forewing, and the dark postmedial fades away less abruptly basad. The other forewing markings are more obscure. Only females are known, and the genitalia are distinct from those of irrorata.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Taiwan, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen is from 1930m on G. Kinabalu.
