Diagnosis. The next four species have the
antemedial black area extending across the wing to the costa, but in tepescens and its close
relative described below this antemedial band never has any whitish edging on
its distal side, and the postmedial hieroglyph is not hook-like as in bubo but more
bolt-shaped with the largest process directed distad. See the next species for
distinction of the two.
Geographical range. Sundaland.
Habitat preference. Most specimens seen are from
lowland forest, though one was taken at 1465m on Bukit Retak in Brunei.
