    No. They are typical Mycalesis mineus macromalayana.


    A. White striae around occelli thin & narrow; peripheral striae usually too.

    A1. M. mineus; HW inner margins of ocelli form a sharp triangular indentation away from the white band; lower 4 spots in line.

    A2. M. perseus. Ocelli on both wings often arranged in an arc; HW inner margins of ocelli form a wide bowl indentation; lower 4 apots strongly out of line.
