Diagnosis. The ground colour of the forewings is bone colour, the typical
Didigua markings relatively light amid a general brownish grey
suffusion. The fasciae are greenish brown, the postmedial often with a square
of the same colour at the costa extending basad from it to incorporate the faint
discal markings. The hindwings are a similar shade to the forewings but
distinctly more rufous in tint.
Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.
Habitat preference. Most records are from lowland dipterocarp forest, e.g.
at 150m on G. Mulu and at 300m in the Ulu Temburong, but one was taken at 1930m
on G. Kinabalu.
