    1. Eurema hecabe hecabe .
    The FW upperside black border can be made out to be strongly excavated on the inner margin as in E. hecabe.
    E. heacabe has a more quadrate HW, more angular ,the margin straight from v1b to about v4. FW typically with 2 cellspots.

    FW cellspots variably absent at times.

    E. brigitta :FW black border margin arcuate & more regular; HW less angular & with dark fasciae ;FW without any cellspot.

    Thank you so much Dr. Seow

    1. The absence of (or not very apparent - may be) cell spot in the Eurema species caused the confusion in me.
    Now I am very clear it is Eurema hecabe hecabe.

    2. Thanks for the id pointers of Neptis hylas and Neptis jumbah.
    Regards gkbaliga
