Artaxa tuhana

There is some resemblance to cina, but tuhana is smaller with a diagnostic black spot subapically on the forewings, and the outer pale fascia of the two is distinctly sinuous.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. The type material was from 1200m and 1620m on G. Kinabalu. A male has since been taken at 1000m in lower montane forest on G. Mulu.
