The forewings are uniformly paler than in the other species, a greenish grey, with a lenticular mark formed from the postmedial at the costa and the posterior course of the postmedial conspicuously paler. There is also a darker patch on the costa subbasally and a double dark dot subdorsally within the medial zone.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The holotype and one other specimen were taken in Pulo Laut, a low-lying island at the south-east corner of Borneo. A further specimen has been taken in lowland dipterocarp forest at 150m near the Sungei Rampayoh in Brunei, and another, with a much more uniformly grey forewing, from alluvial forest in the G. Mulu National Park.
