In subrepleta there are two key features: (1) the forewing basal area's markings - three strong black streaks from base, on the costa (to the discal cell), from the dorsum almost to the discal cell and sometimes abutting the costal streak then angled dorsally, and a shorter streak sandwiched in between; (2) the hindwing discal spot is contiguous with the medial fascia. In militaris, of the f/w basal streaks, only the small middle streak actually starts at the wing base, the other two start sub-basally on the costa and dorsum, and point to the discal cell; the h/w discal spot is discrete, not contained in the medial fascia ('cos there aint no medial fascia) subrepleta - http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Taxbrowser_Taxonpage?taxid=313431 militaris - http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Taxbrowser_Taxonpage?taxid=142047
