    Default A strange Neptis species from Krung Ching

    Photographed this week at Krung Ching, Nakhon Sri Thammarat, s. Thailand. Three images, same individual.
    At first glance I thought this would be easy to identify.
    The sullied cell-end triangle should surely point to Neptis clinia or Neptis nata, but various other features do not match either of these species. The closest I can find is Neptis cartica, but this species is unknown from southern Thailand and would be well out of range.

    So my assumption is that this might be some southern form of a northern Thai species with which I am not familiar.

    With many thanks.

    Neptis leucoporos.
    HW discal band of even width throughout.
    FW postdiscal spots well spaced, the one in space 2 (spot 2) largest & rounded.

    Many thanks for that. I see now. Other photos I have of this species are slightly different which was confusing me.
