Aquis albida Walker
Walker, 1864, J. Linn. Soc. (Zool.), 7: 52.
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.
Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo.
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.
