Calymera pollex

This species is like a smaller version of lukaschi but slightly paler, the forewings more orange and lacking a dark shade to the more rounded margin. The fasciae are irregular and there is a discal dot; the medial area enclosed by the fasciae was likened by Kobes (1997) to an Easter Island statue in shape. The submarginal is a sinuous row of dark dots.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Only three Bornean specimens have been seen, two from lowland dipterocarp forest at 150m at the Danum Valley Field Centre, Sabah, and the other from Bidi in the lowlands of Sarawak.
