    Burara jaina. Correction: Most likely B. anadi.
    HW orange cilia reaching vein 7; HW orange patch close to the HW cellend.
    FW may have a white spot.

    I think you are right here.

    There are examples of B. jaina without the FW white discal spot.

    The underside of B. anadi is purple-washed, more noticeable on the FW.
    This gives it a darker ground colour.
