    Default Potanthus mingo - confirmation of ID

    From Mae Hong Son, nw Thailand. I am pretty sure that this should be P. mingo. Two individuals here, but photographed at the same time in the same spot.

    Would that be correct?
    Many thanks.

    A view of the underside will help a lot.

    Potanthus pseudomaesa.
    FW spots 4 & 5 detached from spot 6 above, very slight overlap with spot 3; spots 2 & 3 relatively broad ; UpH band with outer spot well projected, veins may be lightly dark.
    Underside band edged with dark spots .Abdominal end narrowly banded black, usually with a black patch or shading.

    1. is Potanthus mingo.

    2. should be Potanthus pseudomaesa. Note FW band almost detached between spot 3 & 4; HW band with outer spot rather projected.
