    Spindasis ictis. Correction : S. nipalicus.

    Three species are very similar.

    S. nipalicus ;The two short FW postdiscal bars form a 'V' .

    S. rukmini.The two short bars are parallel to each other.

    S. ictis; The two short bars converge but do not meet.

    Correction: Spindasis nipalicus.


    Oops here.

    I could not assess the website of Butterflies of India properly.
    It took a long time just to get one image for each species.
    Basing the ID on one image cause a lot of errors.

    Now that I can see all the images properly it is not ictis in which the bands are a darker tone.

    S. nipalicus bands light thinly outlined in black. FW & HW basal spot light.

    S. zhengweilie ;FW & HW basal spot & bar largely black.
