Taxonomic note. The original description does not specify type depository, though female
material in BMNH fits the illustration, description and type locality exactly. A
probable male from the Danum Valley area of Sabah is also illustrated, but the
male syntype of pumilia is darker, with the marginal yellow much
narrower. The genitalia are similar, however.
Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia.
Habitat preference. The original material was from the vicinity of G.
Kinabalu. The male illustrated was taken in primary lowland forest at 170m near
the Danum Valley Field Centre, Sabah.
