Abstract

The sympatric occurrence of Stichophthalma louisa Wood-Mason and S. howqua (Westwood) (Amathusiidae) has been investigated in the Tam Dao Mountains in northern Vietnam. Distribution and diagnosis of both species and their subspecies are discussed. The Tam Dao range seems to be the only locality of sympatric occurrence of both closely related species.
