This and the next species are similar, but rufipicta has the markings and suffusion more black. The hindwing medial is more irregular and picked out in much paler grey with black basal to it. There is a similar series of arches in the area distal to it but these enclose black and are separated from the fascia by red.

Geographical range. Borneo.
