The first two are of the same Baron, side and upper side. Seems to be similar to the Euthalia aconthea in the sub discal white markings but don't seem to match and the hind wing pattern seems to differ.

This second one shows a partial open side. Not sure which Baron this is

1 & 2
Uncertain but should be a variant of the female of .E. mahadeva.
The typical form is this, but in the north it is largely brown.

The pattern is close eg sharply saggitate HW markings. underside FW with white apex & HW bluish grey.

Female of E. eriphylae have different white band.

Females of E. phemius, tinna & agnis have a broad oblique band.

Female of E. aconthea have different upperside markings ;also HW underside brown ,not bluish grey.
male & 2 females.

3 & 4
E. alpheda female.
