    Default Confirmation on ID - Potanthus pava

    Photographed at Nam Nao, central Thailand, I originally had this down as Potanthus rectifasciata, but looking at the spots in the upper hindwing (separated spots in space 6 and 7) there does seem to be a possibility that this is P. pava.
    Would P. pava be correct?
    Many thanks.

    Many thanks for this.
    There are no recent records of Potanthus pseudomaesa for Thailand, nor any photos, just some old literature records for the north and northeast. An interesting record.
