Amata elongimacula

This species has five transparent areas on the forewing as in species of the white-spotted group discussed first. All those on the forewing are diagnostically elongate. Each abdominal segment is ringed with yellow.

Taxonomic notes. The male genitalia are typical of Amata, hence the species is transferred to that genus.

Geographical range. Pulo Laut, an island just south of Borneo.
