Didigua mixticolor

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.
