Photo Gallery and Species Biology

Comibaena quadrinotata. Verbatim from Han et al, 2012 "The wing pattern of Comibaena fuscidorsata are similar to those of Comibaena quadrinotata. However the wings are tinged with a yellowish colour rather than blue, and the tornal and apical patches are larger. The brown forewing tornal patch is semicircular, but pointed in Comibaena quadrinotata, reaching or slightly extending beyond CuA2."
