    This does looks correct, but the correct name is now Neptis capnodes pandoces.
    There were a lot of confusion with wsf & dsf of the Himalayan Neptis.

    Smetacek have found that the original taxon yerburii falls as a ssp of Neptis nata (synonym peilei )
    The taxon capnodes is raised to full species & the taxon pandoces falls a ssp. of capnodes.

    There is a pix of the taxon pandoces under the old name of N. yerburii pandoces. fig 14. left-topside.

    N. soma :FW submarginas triangualr cut in strongly at apex.

    N. nata, very similar but FW potdiscal spots 1b, 2, & 3 more spaced out.
