|Distribution||Indonesia (Borneo, Sarawak), Malaysia (Sarawak)|
Type locality: see comments.
|Types||Neotype: BMNH 19126.96.36.199 (formerly BMNH 19188.8.131.52). The original holotype at ZRC is now lost (Figueroa & Low 2021).|
|Diagnosis||Coloration in life. “Above: Black with iridescent sheen, head and tail red, and two longitudinal bands on each side of the middle line red. Beneath: White blotched heavily with black, constituting from 30 to 35 irregular transverse bands: the under surface of the tail is immaculate white.” (Shelford 1901: 56)|
|Comment||The type locality was given erroneously as “Singapore” by BLANFORD (1881) according to STUEBING (1991: 327).|
Authorship: Usually, Blanford 1881 is given as author. However, Figueroa & Low 2021 argue that Dennys 1880 is the describer of this species.
Conservation: known from only eight museum specimens (Figueroa & Low 2021).
|Etymology||Named after Latin “linea”, meaning stripe or line.|
