    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)

    Love the Papilio shot and the colourful background in the Vanessa shot! It's unique and matches the butt...

    Photobucket now does not allow 3rd party hosting unless I upgrade to a subscription-based account.
    Will try to put back the photos here.

    Have not been posting photos for a while - due to many bad weekend weather or very low butterfly activities during my last few outings since late August.

    95. Another Pseudoborbo bevani ?? - shot on a different day at a different location


    96. Acraea issoria

    Post 39 94, 95.
    Borbo cinnara.

    Pseudoborbo bevani. Some experts disagree with needing to erect a different genus.
    FW spots neater & smaller; spot 1b poor or obsolete; subapical spots more aligned.
    Antennae with a more prominent pale area behind the black clubs.
    HW is more rounded but impossible to judge in fieldshots.

    Borbo cinnara
    FW spots larger & irregular; spot 1b always prominent; subapical spots with spot 6 (lowest) typically well out of alignment.
    Antennal shafts appearing mostly dark ,without a pale area behind the clubs (except at a certain angle a bit of paleness is visible).
    HW more prominently lobed at the tornus but not noticeable at rest.
