    Default Celatoxia marginata or Lestranicus transpectus?

    Photographed at Doi Phu Kha, n Thailand at 1,600 metres. These two images were photographed in the same place (same bush) although as six minutes apart I cannot guarantee they are the same individual. Given there was nothing else in the area I assume this is the same species. However, the upperside looks like Celatoxia marginata, but the underside looks like Lestranicus transpectus which is confusing.

    Comments welcome please.

    I think you have two species here.

    The upperside match the female C. marginata splendens.

    The female L. transpectus Have FW white band extend to lower margin.

    The underside is L. transpectus.
    HW space 1b has a sub-basal spot which is absent in Celatoxia marginata.

    Many thanks for confirming my suspicions. I was definitely thinking something was wrong there!
