Coordinator notes: This is a female Pyrisitia dina. The ventral FW on "messalina" is mostly white, and the blotch on the HW should be larger and squarer. On Dina, the HW patch extends only to that first thick vein, as it does on this individual. Whereas on "messalina" it extends much lower on the HW. Also, the FW tip is more pointed on Dina, as on this individual. A little more rounded on "messalina"
