Dindica alaopis

The hindwing border is much narrower than in the other two Bornean Dindica, particularly on the underside in the male where the yellow runs right up to the black band rather than stopping short of it. The forewing discal spot is vestigial on the underside of alaopis but strong in the other two species.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference. This species ranges from 900m to 2600m, but is most common in upper montane forest.
