    Permara pugnans
    Note all black downturned antennal clubs.

    In the 2nd pic the black smudges around yellow spots can be seen.

    Usually recognised by its granular appearance, but the resolution is not high enough.

    Parnara bada.

    P. bada is recognised by its short antennae & thick stubby clubs.
    The underside spots are very variable, small & often much reduced.

    The main spot here is in space 3, a faint one in space 2 & a dark smudge in space 4.

    Examples.

    Dear Doctor Seow,

    The recent weather is horrible for any form of butterflies, but great for shooting Leptosia nina
    I did manage to shoot this tajuria today. What are your opinions of this tajuria?

    Male Tajuria deudorix ingeni.
    You can see the postdiscal band/line in space 3 is very straight & fully detached.
    The postdiscal 'V' in space 1b is very shallow.
    The shorter palpi indicate a male.
