    Thank you, sir. I think this is a typical Pelopidas conjuncta. Could you have a look please?

    Female Pelopidas mathias.
    The ground colour is strongly grey with marginal pale shading.
    There is a spot 7 which is not present in P. conjuncta.

    P. conjuncta (= conjunctus).
    Much larger.
    FW spots large & yellowish.
    HW spots whitish, typically spots 2, 3, 4, & 6.Spot 7 is absent.

    Thank you, sir. I mainly thought P. conjuncta because of the purplish gloss it has and yellowish FW spots. Perhaps this one is P. agna then. Fond on same location, same time. This too appears purplish. Never seen P. mathias or P. agna this color before. Or maybe it's just my eyes. :D

    This individual is confusing me. Cannot be Potanthus, looks strange for Telicota or Oriens. Could it be Cephrenes?

    Female Telicota bambusae.

    Telicota species lack a HW spot 7 seen in Potanthus.
    Females are darker ,the FW cellmark have a 'black hole' in it.

    Female T. bambusae .FW cellend bars both long.
    Male & female.

    Two females.

    Thank you so much, sir. T. bambusae makes sense. Had never seen Telicota with discontinuous band before.

    Most likely Tarucus venosus.

    Of the Tarucus that are similar T. indicus & balkanicus are found mostly in the west & south.

    Of T nara the typical form range from S. India to Bengal, while two synonyms extricatus & alternatus are mostly western.

    The form of T. nara have the HW discal spots less irregular & rougly form 3 bands.
    Typical male & underside.

    https://www.ifoundbutterflies.org/me...ekar_ai949.jpg


    T. venosus; HW discal spots irregular & disorganised.

    All the Taracus species. fig 2 T. venosus. Note chaotic arrangement of HW spots.
