    I think it is Ypthima baldus.
    I may be wrong.

    In the past I followed the key as stated & only IDed as baldus those with HW spot 6 much smaller than spot 5 & spots 2 & 3 large & conjoined.

    Howevr many valid examples of Y. baldus have smaller spots.
    Y. baldus baldus from India.

    These two are undoubted Y. horsfieldii humei.

    PS 2. To meet the criteria for Y. baldus newboldi ie. large conjoined spots 2 & 3, and spot 5 much larger than spot 6, only one specimen from Yala ( lower left) will match.
    The rest should be Y. horsfieldii humei.
    This does not seem right.
