Specimens lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus., 33: 857.
Phanaca damnipennis Walker; Kobes, 1997: 167.
Diagnosis. The forewing fasciae and discal spot are diffusely darker; the
lenticular marking on the dorsum is variably present in Sumatra (Kobes, 1997)
and appears to be a Sundanian peculiarity; the related Sulawesi endemic species
Roepke has this feature more strongly developed, containing a white triangle.
Geographical range. Indian Subregion, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo,
Three specimens have been taken in pristine and
selectively logged lowland forest near the Danum Valley Field Centre in Sabah.
