    In Baoris only the underside of the antennal club & part of the shaft is pale or whitish.
    This is hardly visible in the normal side position although in some cases it is visible.Always not visible from above.

    You can see B. pagana has the largest pale area on the antenna that is visible in a side view.

    Most Caltoris also have more visible pale areas.

    The view of the Baoris in post 1 is slightly upwards towards the head which make the pale area on the antenna visible.


    TL Seow: Cheers.
