    K/A.: Respected TL Seow Sir
    In my last thread, you advice for Eurema andersoni have one FW cellspot & HW with postdiscal spot 7 a squiggle with a long tail. In regards, I cant understand about squiggle with a long tail. Can you please advice with pictorial explanation.
    Also you suggest for Eurema hecabe have FW with 2 cellspots, but may loose one or both. HW spot typical a shapeless blotch, HW margin angular, & shape more quadrate. In this regards, I cant understand HW spot typical a shapeless blotch. Can you please advice with pictorial explanation.

    The wingshape is distorted but this looks to be E. hecabe.
    There is some variations & the features are not absolute.

    E. andersoni; HW postdiscal spot 7 a squiggle with a long tail downwards (variable)HW margin not angular at vein 4; FW with 1 cellspot.
    Note below images HW postdiscal spot 7 with a tail.
