    Default Prosotas noreia - confirmation of ID

    I have been scanning through my old images of Prosotas dubiosa, when I came across these two, which I now think may be wrongly labeled. Both these two images are from Chiang Dao, n. Thailand. These two look quite different to the usual P. duboisa, and I think they are more likely Prosotas noreia, which is a rather scarce butterfly in Thailand.

    They are both Prosotas noreia.

    The main differences are thus.
    1. P. noreia
    FW last costal spot always in line with the midcell bar. (Usually out of line in P. dubiosa.)
    2. HW postdiscal spot 7 atop spot 6 or spot 7 may even be shifted out a bit.
    (In P. dubiosa postdiscal spot 7 is shifted to the inside (base-wards) of spot 6.)
    3. HW black tornal spot with a point usually .( In dubiosa rounded.)
