    Default Ypthima baldus?

    I think this should be Ypthima baldus newboldi from the arrangement of the ocelli, which is rather surprising since i've been seeing more horsfieldi lately

    Agree it is Y. baldus.
    Normally if you draw a line thru the centres of spot 2 & 3 & likewise thru spots 5 & 6, the lines intersect at a greater (wider) angle ( on the inside or basad) in horsfieldii.
    However there are a lot of variations & perspective distortion in photos make it hard to see.

    Thanks for the pointers Dr Seow. At least these two seem to be quite consistent with their differences
