Didigua heidwigae

The forewing has the markings typical of the genus, but these are only lightly represented in a relatively uniform pale grey except for a darker discal spot and darker submarginal dots. The discal dot has a paler grey zone basad, and the dorsum is also edged narrowly darker (not strongly developed in the Bornean specimens).

Geographical range. Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.

Habitat preference. A single male and female have been taken in secondary and coastal forest at Seria in Brunei, and a further male in lowland forest at Labi.
