    Default Euthalia aconthea or E. merta

    I photographed this at Sri Lanna NP, n Thailand this week. I can't decide if it is E. aconthea or E. merta. Evidently a female, but I find no consistent diagnostic features to tell females apart in images I can find. I think this is merta based on the size and shape of the white spots on the underside of the forewing. Comments appreciated.
    Many thanks
