    Female Nacaduba berenice.

    There is a costal spot (on the forward margin) of the FW directly above the innermost band.
    This is absent from N. beroe.

    N. beroe male showing absent costal spot above innermost band ;The female here have a vaque innermost costal spot.

    N. berenice female is very variable.
    When Horace raised a batch it was thought then there were several species in it.
    Two Singapore examples. Markings may narrow or broad ,light or dark.

    N. calauria almost always have the FW band straight & submarginal spot 4 & 5 sharply pointed.

    N. kurava; FW submarginal spots large with inner margins rounded.

    TL Seow: Cheers.
    PS. The tails are broken off.
    Where the tail is, the black marginal line curved out to a point. ie below the black spot.
    In a tailless species ,the the black marginal line is even throughout. eg Tailless Lineblue.
