Gogana specularis

Gogana specularis

This and the next two species have a transverse row of translucent patches on the forewing postmedially. In specularis the wing margins are more irregular, and the hindwing is less reduced, more normal in shape in the male, and more heavily marked in both sexes. The margin at the forewing tornus does not have strong dark markings. The female is the same colour as the male except for a rufous tinge to the hindwing: the centre of the hindwing margin is produced, slightly dentate, but the tornus is not conspicuously excavate.

Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat preference. This is a lowland species. Never common, it has been taken in a variety of forest types, including alluvial and heath forests.
