    1. Ancistroides nigrita.
    In this view it may be difficult to tell, but the antenna with a long tapering tip is that of A. nigrita.

    2. Potanthus ganda female.
    There is some vague dark dusting of the HW veins but not on the FW.
    The ground colour is reddish.
    P. ganda have the veins mostly clear & the ground colour is more reddish than other Potanthus.
