    Parnara ganga.

    Evan in trying to fit the description for all regions can be rather confusing.
    The description follows that revision by Chiba & Eliot.

    P. bada bada ;spots typically small & well separated .
    FW cellspots almost always absent.
    FW spot 3 equally spaced from spots 2 & 4.
    HW with spots typically small & irregular .Spot 6 variable.

    Note HW spot 6 so can not be P. ganga.

    P. ganga ;FW sometimes with a lower cellspot.
    FW spot 3 nearer spot 2 than spot 4.
    HW spots typically larger ; spot 6 almost always absent.

    P. guttata mangala.
    FW may have two cellspots, more often only the upper cellspot is present.
