    Yes, I was unable to ID the Parum from the book, I only managed by accidentally stumbling over a pic online (John Moore, thaibugs). After that I could confirm by the book, as you say greens do fade, but I really think it is worse in that book than it should be...

    It must be VERY old specimens (or specimens exposed to light) or a printing problem or a combination. The Pergesa is hopeless too.

    With regards to No 2, I am more inclined towards Acosmeryx omissa, though the members of this genus are very similar, and the specimen appears quite worn.

    The named ones appear correct.
    Agreed with you no. 2 is unlikely to be A. anceus as the forewing dark band is gently curved. I think it is also missing a dark band/line at the upper abdomen just below the thorax.
    It could be the female of A. omissa as you suggested.
    The post 5 male looks correctly A. anceus.
