    Review.

    Euploea mulciber is correct.

    The undersides of the three E. midamus, algea & sylvester need a recheck as they differ very little.

    Thank you so much sir for the above information.

    Reading the keys above, the FW is looking produced and discal spots looks reduced. So tentative Euploea midamus. Please have a look.

    Post 5.

    It should correct as E. midamus.
    The spots on the FW are reduced in number.
    Only two submarginal spots visible, but one is at the apex.
    Only three marginal spots visible all far down nearer the tornus.
    HW discal spots not prominent.


    TL Seow: Cheers.
