    1. Female Nacaduba kurava.
    FW postdiscal band typically straight & entire.
    The submarginal spots are often large with rounded margins.
    Female UpF blue have a white apical area.
    Examples from different countries.

    Possible confusion with female N. calauria . The submarginal spots especially spots 4 & 5 are pointy.
