Diagnosis. Forewing length is 17–19 mm in males and 21.5–22.5 mm in females. Cyana trilobata   differs externally from C. candida   by the crimson border of patagia, the presence of a crimson dot on the thorax medially, and the longer red strip on the basal part of forewing costa. The male genitalia of C. trilobata   differ from those of C. candida   by their more robust vinculum, longer ampulla and more robust spinules of the distal cluster. In the female genitalia, the apophyses anteriores of C. trilobata   are slightly longer than those of C. candida   , the sclerotized area of the posterior section of corpus bursae is longer, and the appendix bursae is broader.

Distribution. North East India (Sikkim: first record for India), Nepal ( Kishida 1995, as candida   ), Bhutan (present study), China (Xizang and Yunnan) ( Fang 1992; 2000), North Thailand (Chiang Mai Prov.) ( Černý & Pinratana 2009, as candida   ) and North Vietnam (Fan-si-pan Mts.) (present study).
