Diagnosis. The oblique dark shading to the forewing distinguishes this species
from plana Walker. In the male genitalia the apical spur to the sacculus is
never elbowed; the gnathus is weakly trilobed.
Geographical range. Himalaya to western China and Sundaland.
Habitat preference. The species has been taken infrequently in lowland and lower
montane forest; the three specimens taken during the Mulu survey were from 250m
and 900m on the limestone of G. Api.
