    Note female (elongate body & wings) Telicota augias.

    The females are more daunting to ID.

    Telicota augias; More orangey than other species.
    Veins across band lightly dark-dusted.
    Overall evenly orange shade.

    Telicota besta. Underside greenish ochreous, & so appears duller & yellower.
    HW veins across band lightly dark-dusted.
    Notch on upper inner margin of HW band usually larger than in augias.
