    1. Pelopidas probably P. mathias female.

    The female of the two are nearly identical above.

    Female P. mathias; A line through the two cellspots move closer to the spot in space 1b, may touch it, & continue below the spot ( view in a ser specimen).

    Female P. agna; A line thru the two cellspots move away from the spot in space 1b & so does not pass underneath this spot.

    2. Iambrix salsala.
    UnF is uniformly brown.

    Similar. I. stellifer; UnF apical area a paler brown.

    3. Caltoris malaya male.
    FW cell without cellspot, rusty brown ; FW spots wellspaced; antennal club more gradual.

    Caltoris philippina. Sharper FW; greenish ochreous; greenish body hairs.

    Parnara bada ;Antennal club abruptly thicken, stubby; FW spots 2 , 3 & 4 closer.; greyer ochreous brown tone.
