    M0ost likely male Caltoris malaya.
    The specimen is rather worn. There is a quadrate yellow spot 3 visble.
    What appears to be a cluster of large spots in the FW cell are artifacts, injury marks.
    The underside is quite dark suggesting C. cahira.

    C. cormasa :FW spots yellowish; Underside HW deep reddish tone; antenna with pale area.

    Default ID COrrection.

    The strongly bowed FW & more uniformly dark coloured antennae & wings indicate it is Baoris oceia.

    The FW spots are whitish but can appeared yellowish at times.
