Diagnosis. The forewings are variegated green and blackish, sometimes with a
diffuse white patch distal to the postmedial subdorsally. The transverse paler
green fasciae are rather irregular in course, but variable in this, and tend to
be rather diffuse. The next two species show distinct differences in facies, but
do not differ in genitalic characters such as the shape of the costal process of
the valve and the ornamentation of the aedeagus vesica. Their genitalia are
therefore not illustrated.
Geographical range. Indo-Australian tropics from India to the Solomons; not
known from Australia.
All material is montane, taken at 1000m and 1790m
on G. Mulu, 900m on G. Api and 1620m and 1930m on G. Kinabalu. The species is
