    Default Baoris oceia?

    Is this the Baoris oceia? Looks like it has a hair tuft in the cell on top of a scent pouch. Photos of both sides.

    Yes. It should be Baoris oceia.
    Both species have a hair tuft in the male.

    Colouration may not be an accurate guide.

    Baoris; Generally darker, FW outer margin sinuous, the lower part slightly concave.
    FW spots tend to be reduced in nos. ie subapical spot 1, upper cellspot often absent.
    Singapore males.

    Baoris farri; In India & S. China, B. oceia is absent & so B. farri is more reliably IDed.
    Male often have a full complement of spots (Perhaps not in Singapore).
    Generally lighter brown.
    FW outer margin straight or slightly convex.
    Yunnan.
