    Thanks for the confirmation, sir. Could you please check this Jamides? Looks little different than the regular alecto.

    Yes the female Jamides alecto. The UnF white striae are all broad.
    Note the lowest stria of the postdiscal bnad hangs free, so this is not unique to J. caeruleus.

    Thank you, sir. I need a serious confirmation on this one. Scobura isota isnt reported from Nepal before, and I found a bunch of these in east, near Sikkim in dry season of March. While I saw more than 10 individuals, I managed to photograph several and all were typical S. isota as per Evans '49. Question is, if this is enough or do I need genitalia, which isnt possible for me now.

    They are all fairly typical dsf Scobura isota.


    S. isota & cephala have been much confused.


    Scobura cephala.
    FW spot 4 always present.
    UnH with a large rectangular spot in space 1b, in continuation of the spot in space 2 (In Evans' time space 1b is called space 1c .)
    Dsf with lighter brown shadings beyond the spots. In wsf always deeply shaded brown.
    See fieldshots at bottom of webpage.

    Scobura isota.
    FW spot 4 usually absent.
    UnH spot in space 1b absent or small & vestigial, often with a corresponding small spot in space 6.
    Dsf unH ground entirely yellow.
    WsF UnH with brown shading as in S. cephala.

    These should all be S. isota.

    Also check the key here.
    Page 2. key line 5 for S. cephala & isota.
    Note: Space M3 is space 3, space CuA2 is space 1b.

    Thank you so much, sir. Also I came to know that S. cephala will never have spots reduced like in most of my individuals.
