Paralbara perhamata

The hindwing is more extensively if diffusely fasciated than in the next species and the medial zones lack paler grey patches (there is a conspicuous, somewhat quadrate patch on the costa of watsoni Holloway). The underside of watsoni is much paler but grades conspicuously darker at the distal margins.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya; Borneo (ssp. sinuosa).

Habitat preference. P. perhamata occurs at lower altitudes than its congener (500m in hill dipterocarp forest on G. Mulu) but overlaps it at higher altitudes (1618m on Bukit Retak and 1930m on G. Kinabalu). It is much less common.
