The Straight Plum Judy, Abisara kausambi kausambi (C. & R. Felder)

As its name suggests, it can be identified from others by the straight postdiscal band on its forewing underside. This is an insect of the forest's edge and can be seen the earlier part of the morning sunning itself on open sunny patches or the same localities later in the afternoon.
