    71 a & b. Likely P. confucius male. FW(pic 2) without an orange patch at the base of space 2.

    It has been stated P. pava male in Taiwan has the base of space 2 (FW) with a patch of orange (much as in T besta male).
    Malayan P. pava also have this (see C&P4) so that this should be the case in SE Asia.

    P. pava FW space 2 base with an orange patch; also seen on the underside.
    Underside bands marked with black dashes, poor in dsf.
    HW spot 6 relatively large (ie as largec as spot 7)
