Euxena albiguttata

Euxena albiguttata

This species and Episothalma robustaria Guenée (Episothalma robustaria) are superficially similar in wing shape and facies. The black discal spots are smaller on the upperside of E. robustaria but recur on the underside: they are absent from the underside of albiguttata. In both species the males are mainly yellow below, the females clouded dark greyish: in albiguttata the submarginals are stronger, but in robustaria the postmedials are stronger, that on the hindwing much more sharply angled than in albiguttata. Males are a more intense orange yellow below.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Java, Sulawesi.

Habitat preference. No material has been taken in recent surveys, but older material is mostly from lowland localities.
