Eucyclodes discipennata

The clear green basal area, almost circular, of the hindwing is of distinctive shape within the genus. The black and white suffusion fills the hindwing marginal zone but is broadly costal on the forewing apart from a small tornal patch. The hindwing below has a diffuse submarginal black band.

Geographical range. Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Java, Sumatra, Bali.

Habitat preference. The three specimens taken in recent surveys are from a wide range of biotopes: coastal forest at Seria in Brunei; upper montane forest at 1618m on Bukit Retak, Brunei and 1200m on the limestone G. Api, Sarawak.
