Arthisma amisa Swinhoe comb. n.
Savara amisa Swinhoe, 1906, Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (7), 17: 549.

Arthisma amisa

. The wing shape and general facies are as in the previous two species, but the forewing is much greyer and fasciated irregularly with black lunules antemedially and postmedially.

Taxonomic note. The species shares with other Arthisma the lobed hindwing and ciliate antennae in males. The fasciation of the forewing is also consistent, and that on the underside of fore- and hindwings is dark and relatively basal as in Arthisma compared with Savara.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen is from an area of 10 year old regenerating alluvial forest on abandoned farmland near Long Pala at the foot of G. Mulu.
