Agathia vicina

The semicircular blackish zone near the apex of the forewing and the increasing intensity of black suffusion from margin to base of the hindwing, except for a small subdorsal green patch, are diagnostic.

Geographical range. Sumatra, Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia (FRIM colln).

Habitat preference. The three Bornean specimens seen have been from lowland dipterocarp forest in Brumas, Sabah (before clearance for plantation: the species was not recorded by Chey (1994) at Brumas), and the Ulu Temburong, Brunei.
