    These are very difficult .
    It is hard to even match Evans' dsecription with any on the websites.

    1. Probably H. filda.
    There is a faint upper cellspot.
    Despite the name Absent Ace, H. filda may have a tiny cellspot.
    H. filda.
    UnH central area paler, but band illdefined & suffused over.

    2. Halpe wantona.
    UpF with an upper cellspot ,spot 2 & 3 partially overlapping.
    UnH central area darkish, not paler, pale postdiscal spots reduced in size, diffuse & somewhat obscure.

    3. Too dark large upper cellspot.
    Probably H. aucma.


    4. This looks the same as H. aucma
