Panacra dohertyi Rothschild; Rothschild & Jordan, 1903: 538.
Diagnosis. See Panacra psaltria

The longitudinal dark shade to the angle of the margin is broader, more
diffuse, more triangular than in malayana.
Geographical range. Sundaland.
Habitat preference. Harman (1981) only recorded dohertyi from the lowlands

(Holloway, 1976) it was taken as high as 1200m but in an open, cultivated
