Diagnosis. The typical forewing pattern of the genus is modified to give a
broad black border, the interior boundary rounded, parallel to the margin
and edge paler brownish grey, a colour which also clouds the basal part of the
mainly creamy white basal two-thirds.
Geographical range. Andamans, Indian Subregion, Peninsular Malaysia,
Sumatra, Borneo, Philippines, Sulawesi.
Habitat preference. Only four Bornean specimens have been seen, two from the
lowlands of Sabah: Telupid and the Danum Valley, areas of lowland forest with
some secondary forest. The other two are from lowland dipterocarp forest at
Barito Ulu, Kalimantan.
