Avittonia albidentata


Diagnosis. See the generic description; the mauve submarginal markings on dark brown are distinctive.

Geographical range. Singapore, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Most older material is from mountain localities (G. Marapok, G. Kinabalu) but without altitude data, though there is a specimen from the lowlands of Kalimantan in the vicinity of Pontianak. In recent surveys a single female has been recorded in lowland forest at Labi (30-60m) in Brunei, and one specimen was taken in the understorey of primary forest at 170m near the Danum Valley Field Centre in Sabah.
