    This is a typical Nacaduba kurava male.

    There are three main bands on the FW.
    The FW submarginal spots have rounded margins.
    There is always a spot on the costa above the innermost FW band.

    Two similar species with three FW main bands.

    Nacaduba beroe.
    This is similar to N. kurava but always lack the costal spot above the innermost band.

    Nacaduba berenice.
    This always have a costal spot above the innermost FW band (as in kurava).
    The spots are more irregular.
    The dark lines within the bands are strongly developed.
