    They are all D. vidura.

    There is a lot of confusion between what is D. vidura & sinhara on the net.

    It is best to follow the key in C&P4 which describes the peninsular forms of both.
    The key states in D. sinhara the orange patch more or less obliterate the black striae above it in space 2 & part of space 1b.

    Male .Taman Pertanian ,Kuantan.

    Female S. Thailand, border. note orange patch is well formed but there is no black striae at the margin.

    TL Seow: Cheers.
    Probable D. sinhara male . Sg. Tua, Selangor. Note absence of balck stria at margin of orange patch in space 2.

    Typical D. vidura male also frm Sg. Tua. The lunulate (curved) black striae seem to be a variable feature.
