    Pseudomuta group.

    Likely A. aida.
    .
    Both A. aida & ariana looks rather similar with FW margin straight.
    Upperside Fw black border is wider in aida.
    UnF postdiscal band is more irregularly undulate.
    Ground colour may be purple-glazed.

    A. ariana have UpF border in the male narrower ;UnF band less irregular.

    Rapala varuna.

    Bands broad, doubled white-edged. On the HW the band & the cellend are very close & often touch.
