Siglophora bella

The male hindwings are deeply excavate centrally and white or very pale yellow with a brown border in both sexes (deeper yellow in hayata Kobes). The deep brown forewing has the basal half and a more distal quadrilateral block on the costa bright yellow, traversed by numerous fine brown squiggles.

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat preference. Most records are from lowland forest but a few are from 600-900m and one is from 1618m on Bukit Retak, Brunei. Chey (1994) found the species frequent in secondary forest and a Eucalyptus deglupta plantation with secondary understorey in the lowlands of Sabah.
