    3. Borbo cinnara.
    There is no HW cellspot & the colouration & markings are that of B. cinnara.

    4. Female Telicota linna.
    Despite being worn the veins across the HW band are not darkened.

    The female T. augias is more orange & the HW band has the veins lightly dark-dusted.

    It has been quite a long time since my last post here - because I have not got something "interesting" to post.
    Here are four species I have not encountered for a long time.

    9. Likely to be the Nacaduba pavana singapura


    10. Nacaduba berenice icena ?


    11. Likely to be the Jamides elpis pseudelpis


    12. Logania marmorata damis


    13. Abisara geza niya
