    Default Baron Shot in Sabah

    Dear Dr Seow,

    Would appreciate if you could assist to ID this Baron shot in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. I did not manage to to shoot the upper side as it is up a tree.

    Tanaecia godartii vacillaria.


    There are a lot of name changes.
    I am basing this on Funet.

    This & T. iapis are similar.

    The underside FW of T. godartii have the band/line parallel to the margin.

    The underside FW of T. iapis( T. cocytina ) have the fascia vague, but slanting, oblique.

    The form known as niepelti is also classified as a separate species by some.
    Surprisingly it is also found in China.
