Amata borneogena Obraztsov
Diagnosis. The yellow spots of the forewing are more even in size than in either of
the next two species. The yellow area of the hindwing encloses a small black
spot more or less centrally (not at all in tetragonaria and more
anteriorly in prepuncta).
Taxonomic notes. This and the next three species belong to the pfeifferae Moore
group as discussed by Obraztsov (1955).
Geographical range. Borneo, Natuna Is.
Habitat preference. The species is rare, known only from two males: the
holotype from Mt. Lundu near Kuching, Sarawak; a single male (BM slide 4163)
from Bunguran, Natuna Is.
