    Default parkeri or malayana?

    Dear Dr Seow,

    It is considered as ssp parkeri.


    Lebadea martha is widely variable & intermediates occur with all the subspecies.

    Typical ssp malayana have no mauve colour on the HW & can be very dull ochreous brown.

    Ssp parkeri always have mauve colour & suffusion on the HW.

    Ssp martha (Langkawi & northwards.) have HW strongly reddish brown.
