    All should be Parnara bada.
    Correction: 9, 10 , & 11 are probably P. ganga ;the HW spots & the FW subapical spots are more rectangular.

    P. bada:Spots yellowish/ off white.
    FW spot 3 is quadrate (squarish) & is about equal distance from spot 2 & 4. In pix may appear rectangular from perspective distortion.
    UnH spots all rounded & well separated ,generally small.
