    There are a number of shots of Caltoris taken in NE India & are worth reviewing.

    Caltoris bromus: FW 2 cellspots; usually UnF spot 1b in both sexes. UpF male ocasional spot 1b.
    Female sometimes have UnH spots 2, & 3.

    C. confusa :darker & smaller usually with reduced markings especially absence of upper cellspot & spot 3.
    UnF without a spot 1b.

    C. cahira: FW 2 cellspots. UnH dark chocolate


    2 large cellspots; Un. uniformly brown.
    Should be C. bromus male.

    Both females & likely to be the same species.
    Probably C. bromus females. Correction; These two females are unlikely to be C. bromus.

    Typical C. cormasa with overall reddish tone. Male. FW spots tend to be yellowish. Add. note: A comparison with C. plebeia seem almost identical, but C plebeia never have 3 subapical spots (seen here) & Unh is darker purplebrown.
