    Default Nacaduba calauria - confirmation of ID

    Photographed at Krung Ching, Nakhon Sri Thammarat, s. Thailand.
    These images - same individual left and right sides - look quite different to other Nacaduba species I have photographed in Thailand. The generally strong contrast and the dark and well differentiated marginal and sub-marginal spots make me think this is Nacaduba calauria.

    Would that be correct please?
