Derambila costata

The wings have a general brownish suffusion, particularly strong on the forewing costa, as in the previous species, but the fasciae are less distinct except for the dorsal row of the forewing postmedial that is co-linear with the hindwing discal mark and a similar dorsal bar. See the discussion of O. saponaria above for genitalic features.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya, Sumatra, Borneo.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean specimen is a female taken by Chey Vun Khen in a Gmelina arborea plantation at Brumas, in the lowlands of Sabah.
