albida Walker, [1863]1864, J. Linn. Soc. (Zool.), 7: 52.


Aquis albida

This is a variable species with a sharply angled, almost falcate forewing apex and a rather convex distal margin. Many specimens have a large, roughly triangular whitish area based on the dorsum and extending to the discal position. Within this the rather irregular, linear, fine black postmedial and antemedial are more evident.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. Records have been infrequent but over a wide range, from disturbed coastal forest, heath, alluvial and dipterocarp forest to lower montane forest at 900m on limestone.
