Sypna anisomeris

This and the next species both have the elongate forewing reniform delineated paler; the submarginal also has a clearly defined paler central section, though this is more angled in anisomeris. The hindwings are significantly paler than the forewing and lack paler marginal marks towards the apex; anisomeris is the only Bornean Sypna where these are entirely absent.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. This species was also described from G. Murud, but is frequent in upper montane forest at around 1780m on G. Mulu and ranges from 1500m to 1930m on G. Kinabalu.

Biology. The species was reared from Lithocarpus meijeri (Fagaceae) on G. Kinabalu by K.H.K. Li (A.C. Galsworthy, pers. comm.).
