  • Description

    Wing Length: 11mm. This purple-grey, black and white sp. is readily identified by its FW patterning which resembles C. telphusalis Walker 1859e: 974 with a similar narrow white band antemedianally but the large white patch at the post median position is more rounded, not indented and ‘B’-shaped. Some specimens seen were browner or darker.

    A specimen in Leiden [BOLD RMNHS taxon #19536] from Kaliman Timur Pasoh, has been DNA barcoded (Ratnasingham & Hebert 2007).
