Polyura athamas uraeus (Rothschild)

At a glance almost indistinguishable from the other subspecies athamas but can be differentiated by the lack of orange lunules on the HW upperside and distorted lunules on space 5 & 6 the FW underside. They are common throughout the year and are found in the same localities of subspecies athamas.

Ancistroides gemmifer gemmifer (Butler)

Ressembles very much like a K. sindhu but the orange discal band is less intense and indented on the outer margin. The undersides have glistening post-discal spots (including on the FW underside - first picture) which may not be apparent in the dark shades of the undergrowth. The flash of the camera will immediately sets it apart from K. sindhu. Has the same habits of A. armatus and is found in dense undisturbed undergrowths.
