    Default ID requested for Jamides species

    GREETINGS FROM INDIA!!

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am sending herewith one Jamides sp. (I guessed its a Jamides caeruleus) for identification purpose. Species image captured from Jayanti river, West Bengal, India (North-East region) in the month of April 2018. I observed some points in below:

    1. UNF postdiscal bands incompetely dislocated inwards at space 3.
    2. UNH 2nd striae in space 7 much nearer to the 3rd striae within cell area.
    3. UPF black border widening towards apex. Almost sky blue in color.

    Regards,

    Jamides elpis.

    The two species are frequently confused.
    Some examples seen may be hybrids.


    J. elpis; FW postdiscal band dislocated & the lowest stria usually attached to the inner end of band.
    White striae not blue-tinted.
    HW striae out of alignment; 2nd stria in space 7 nearer 2nd stria in cell.
    UpF lighter pale blue.
