    1. D. basaltide bisaltide.

    2 is probably E. eunice. Correction: E. tulliolus.

    3 is right

    Euploea can be very difficult to ID with the wings distorted.

    E. tulliolus.
    Smaller, FW apex rounded.;Upper HW submarginal spots larger.

    Correction.

    2 is Euploea tulliolus.
    There are examples of E. tulliolus with HW submarginal spots small.
    The apex is rounded.
