    Default Ancema sp - confirmation of ID

    I photographed this at Thung Salaeng Luang, ne Thailand last month. I have it down as Silver Royal Ancema blanka minturna. However, the dark marginal marks on both wings are much blacker (and probably wider) than all my other images of Ancema blanka. I am wondering if I have made an error with the identification?
    Tajuria cippus goes through my mind.
    Both images the same individual.

    Many thanks

    It is Ancema blanka minturna.
    The orange is restricted & there are silver shading around the orange crowns & black spots.

    The next similar one is perhaps Tajuria albiplaga.
    The orange encircled the black spot & there are no silver shading.
