Remarks. 1. The male and female genitalia of malayana  ( Figs. 31–33View FIGURES 31–33, 40, 41View FIGURES 37–42) have significant differences from those of C. bianca  ( Fig. 25–27View FIGURES 25–27, 37View FIGURES 37–42). Therefore we treat this taxon as a good species and not a subspecies of C. bianca  . 2. The type series from Cameron Highlands has reduced black borders of the ante- and postmedial lines ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 9–16), while the specimens from other parts of the species’ range north and south of Cameron Highlands have the well-developed black borders of the transverse lines ( Figs. 12–16View FIGURES 9–16). Because of the absence of genital differences ( Figs. 31–33View FIGURES 31–33), we treat this population as a local color form only. 3. The female paratypes of the species ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 37–42) are not conspecific to the male holotype and paratypes and belong to Cyana determinata sausae Bucsek, 2012  described by males also from Pahang.

Diagnosis. Forewing length is 14.5– 18 mm in males and 19–20 mm in females. Externally, C. malayana  ( Figs. 11–16View FIGURES 9–16) has no significant differences from C. bianca  ( Figs. 1–4View FIGURES 1–8) and C. indosinica  sp. nov. ( Figs. 5–10View FIGURES 1–8View FIGURES 9–16). The male genitalia of C. malayana  ( Figs. 31–33View FIGURES 31–33) differ clearly from those of C. bianca  ( Fig. 25–27View FIGURES 25–27) in the rounded lateral lobes of the vinculum, the larger and more robust ampulla, the much larger medial posterior, medial anterior and distal diverticula, and the broader medial dorsal diverticulum; from C. indosinica  sp. nov. ( Figs. 28–30View FIGURES 28–30) they differ in the significantly larger and more robust ampulla, the narrower medial posterior and distal diverticula, which have narrower fields of cornuti, the smaller medial anterior diverticulum, and the basally narrower medial dorsal diverticulum. The female genitalia of C. malayana  ( Figs. 40, 41View FIGURES 37–42) differ from those of C. bianca  ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 37–42) in the longer ductus bursae, the larger appendix bursae, the shorter and stronger rugose posterior sclerotized plate of the corpus bursae, the weakly sclerotized medial-lateral sclerotized band of the corpus bursae, and the much smaller signa; from C. indosinica  sp. nov. ( Figs. 38, 39View FIGURES 37–42) they differ in the more weakly sclerotized and much less rugose posterior plate of the corpus bursae, and the presence of only two signa in the corpus bursae (while in C. indosinica  sp. nov. there are three signa in the corpus bursae).

Distribution ( Fig. 46View FIGURE 46). South Myanmar ( Hampson 1900), South-West and South Thailand (provinces Kanchanaburi, Chumphon, Ranong and Nakhon Si Tammarat), Malaysia (Malay Peninsula), Indonesia (Sumatra Isl.).
