Eudocima jordani ( Holland, 1900)

( Figs 12 View FIGURE 12 : A–B, 20: E, 25: M–N, 31: M, 95: K)

The male is unique among the Eudocima in having the forewing dark throughout due to a close sprinkling of brownish-black scales on a purplish brown background ( Holland 1900). The female looks similar to those in the E. cajeta group but the dorsal hindwing medial patch on the hindwing is less elongate. This species’ range includes Sulawesi, the Moluccas, New Guinea, Australia (Queensland), the Bismark Archipelago, Nissan Island and New Caledonia ( Zilli et al. 2017).
