Gogana conwayi

There is only slight sexual dimorphism in this straw-coloured species. The fasciation is fine, brown, rather indistinct, lunulate. Confusion with Euphalacra semisecta is possible, but the hindwings are shorter, and the forewing postmedial fasciation is more oblique.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. This is the only truly montane member of the genus, known from G. Kinabalu where it occurs from 1760m to 2110m, with three out of four known specimens taken at the latter altitude.
