Calymera metaphaea

See the previous species.

Taxonomic note. The facies and male genitalia of the taxa brought into synonymy are very similar. The specimens illustrated as this species by Kobes (1997) have more uniform reddish forewings and probably represent another species.

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Java.

Habitat preference. The species is infrequent in lowland and lower montane forest. Chey (1994) took several specimens in plantation and secondary forest in the lowlands of Sabah.
