Calliteara diplozona

This species bears some resemblance to the next two, but is smaller, with more contrast between forewings and hindwings. The forewings are only weakly fasciated, except towards the costa, where double antemedials and postmedials delineate triangles.

Geographical range. Sundaland.

Habitat preference. Most records have been over the range 900-1630m for mountains in Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei, but one male was taken in lowland forest at 150m on G. Mulu.
