loway, 1976: 24.
Calymera lasina Kobes, 1997: 112, syn. n.


Calymera translucens

The forewings are a rich rusty colour with numerous, rather faint blackish wavy fasciae. The hindwings are slightly translucent, a very pale salmon pink.

Taxonomic note. The genitalia of lasina Kobes are very similar, sharing in particular the distinctive basal spur on the costa of the valve and the scattering of short but robust spines at the base of the aedeagus vesica. In the holotype of lasina the valves are relatively short but appear to be deformed.

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra.

Habitat preference. The holotype was from 1200m on G. Kinabalu. During the Mulu survey, three specimens were taken at 1000m and one at 1790m on G. Mulu, and one in alluvial forest at the foot of the mountain (70m). A specimen was also taken at 60m in lowland forest in Brunei.
