    Ochlodes sp.

    1. Most likely Ochlodes subhyalina.female.
    The visible two cellspots indicate the female.
    It is a pity you do not have an underside shot.

    Dear Dr. Seow sir

    I am posting here one Ochlodes sp. that I think to be Ochlodes subhyalina. The photo was taken in Khasi Hills, Meghalaya.

    It is within the normal variation for E. blanda.
