    1. Euthalia monina male.
    There are many more variations than what is shown in the reference books.

    2. Pseudocoladenia dan.
    The male can always be recognised by its horseshoe FW cellspot.

    4. Nacaduba kurava male. FW termen straight; submarginal spots large with rounded inner margins ; HW submarginal spot 6 large typically quadrate.

    Practically all Jamides can be recognised by the HW white striae forming a sharp spike near the inner margin (in a set position.)
    eg. Jamides alecto male & bochus female.

    They are both correct.

    1. The silverstreak on the FW characteristic.

    2. The paler forms of Arhopala alitaeus are often confused with pseudomuta.

    A. alitaeus : darker, more contrasted & often purple-washed.
    HW postdiscal spot 6 is more broadly rounded; submarginal spots are almost separate lunules (half-moons).

    A. pseudomuta ;Typically pale with poorly contrasted markings but some are darker causing confusion with A. alitaeus.
    HW postdiscal spot 6 is more quadrate (squarish) & smaller ; submarginal spots are 'flatter' forming a running band.

    Potanthus mingo male. Unusual as FW spot 5 is smaller than spot 4.
    The FW spot size can varies in all the species.

    The normal form of P. mingo is very similar to P. ganda but the abdominal end is black -banded.
    P. mingo ;Un veins not darkened ;HW outer margins concave & edged or spotted black; abdominal end strongly black-banded.

    2. Jamides celeno male.
    The upperside is pale dull blue till the apex which is darkened.


    3. Nacaduba berenice female.
    This looks very similar to N. calauria

    N. calauria : FW main band almost always straight & unbroken ; FW submarginal spot 4 & 5 sharply triangular.
