    1. Female Baoris farri .
    B. farri typically have full spotting so often 3 subapical spots.
    Also lighter brown than the female B. oceia.


    2. Female of A. nefte.

    The cell end triangular spot in A. reta female is large ,nearly detached, & without a dip on the upper margin.

    The same spot in A. nefte is narrow with a strong dip/depression & continuous with the cell bar.

    3. Telicota besta male.
    There is a patch of orange at the base of space 2 that is seen only in the males of T. colon, besta & augias.
    The shape & colour of the FW band is that of T. besta.



    TL Seow: Cheers.
