    7. Anthene emolus.

    In Anthene the black spot is occassionally missing.

    In Anthene emolus the HW postdiscal spots in space 2, 3, 4, & 5 are in line & joined to the 'V' spot in space 1a & 1b.

    Anthene lycaenina also present with examples in which its distinctive black spot is missing.
    However, in A. lycaenina the HW postdiscal spots in space 2, 3, 4, & 5 are dislocated & have a chaotic appearance.
