    Sorry, it should be a female Nacaduba hermus swatipa. I have dorsal confirmation. Thanks, Jon ))

    Concurred. The metallic scales in the black spot is an ID point not seen in N. sanaya.
    The key in C&P4 becomes confusing here as the distance between the HW postdiscal band & the submarginal spots is wide in space 4 & 5 as in N. sanaya.

    TL Seow: Cheers.

    That was what threw me off initially. Hopefully, the revisers of C&P5 have attempted to rectify these issues. Thanks, Dr Seow!
