    Default Nacaduba sp from Chiang Mai city

    This I photographed in my Chiang Mai city garden, 4 Dec 22. In 7 years of observing butterflies in the garden I have not to date ever seen a Nacaduba species.
    I am undecided whether this is N. kurava or N. berenice.
    Both occur in the region though the later is much scarcer.
    Help with ID please. Many thanks.
