    Yes, they are both male N. kurava.
    Note the FW submarginal spots have rounded margins; the FW postdiscal band is quite straight (usually) & the dark striae are weak.

    Dear Dr Seow,

    Am I correct that there a difference in the marking in the HW? I have circled it to indicate the pointed marking which is not seen in the first photo.

    It is a bit of variation.

    Only Jamides have a prominent spike there, but no Jamides have three main bands on the FW.

    The nearest Jamides often mistaken for Nacaduba is J. bochus.
