    45, Choaspes benjaminii.

    This & C. hemixanthus furcatus are confusingly similar & much mixed up on the web.

    C. benjaminii ;Upperside bluer & basal halves greenish; Underside HW black bar(spot) in space 1b straight & parallel to inner margin.

    C. hemixanthus furcatus is considered a full species as C. furcatus by many.( ie separated from C. hemixanthus from the Papuan region.
    Upperside basal 2/3 pearly green in both sexes. HW underside bar/spot in space 1b curved upwards (ie 'hooked').

    56. Neptis clinia is right. FW cellend triangular spot long-pointed. HW with a tiny white spot at the base of space 3 which forms the lower margin of the band. This is similar to N. hylas 57 which have a larger white spot.

    60, & 61 are both Zizeeria maha which show the effect of cold on development in the pupal stage.

    In Z. karsandra the top three black spots are closer. ;The FW submarginal spots are flattened into lines.
