The Yellow-veined Lancer, Pyroneura latoia latoia (Hewitson)

Uncommon but the most likely species to be encountered among the many, usually found singly on flowering Leea indica bushes on the forest's edge or even shaded secondary growths in wooded villages. May also be seen on other flowering tall shrubs under shades on a sunny morning.

Some keys to its ID:
- FW with silver streak on space 5
- HW vein 8 thinly orange
