    Thanks Dr Seow!

    Just realised I have a few more species that require verification:

    1) Polyura jalysus

    Post 3.

    1 & 3 are correct.

    Heliophorus epicles

    H. indicus is not found here.

    H. epicles & nola are very similar on the underside.

    H. epicles; HW upper part of red border in space 6 jut in more& FW lower white submarginal a slight chevron (V-shaped).
