but more narrow and elliptical in shape. There is a strongly angled but also
slightly curved double postmedial, the angle crossed by a longitudinal dark
streak at about one-third from the costa.
Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo.
Habitat preference. The species is rare but recorded over a wide range of
altitude. The four specimens taken in recent surveys were from 300m (G.
Santubong) and 1000m (G. Mulu) in Sarawak, 1050m (Kundasan on G. Kinabalu) in
Sabah and 1618m (Bukit Retak) in Brunei.
