Cossedia proesei

Only a male is illustrated. The general facies and wing shape is shared with the next three species as discussed under their diagnoses. The female illustrated by Kobes (1997) has more extensive grey on the basal two-thirds of the forewing, separated from the apical marks by an irregular yellow bar, and there is a large yellow subbasal patch. The hindwings are extensively grey, much less strongly produced at the margin.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Two Bornean specimens seen have been from heath forest and lowland dipterocarp forest in Brunei. A further singleton was recorded from the latter habitat at Barito Ulu in Kalimantan.
