    Default An aberrant Eurema blanda?

    When I was looking at a few Eurema spp fluttering around and feeding on the flowers of the Leea indica, I was tracking this individual which I initially thought was E. simulatrix, in view of the brown apical area. Upon processing the shot, I realised that it had 3 cell spots on the forewing! So is this a variant/aberrant female E. blanda ?

    It is within the normal variation for E. blanda.
