See the previous species.

Taxonomic note. The species is very similar to moorei Swinhoe (marginata Moore, praeocc.; Indian Subregion to Taiwan and Singapore), but sympatry in Singapore was suggested to preclude synonymy (Holloway, 1982). However, the differences noted are very minor, and possibly within the variability of a single species. Kononenko & Pinratana (2005) recorded both taxa from Thailand.

Geographical range. Singapore, Sumatra (Lödl, 1999e), Borneo, Philippines, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. See under rufa above.
