@nagabhushanjyothi MoB says the following about Rhesala: The genus consists of small, dark, dark brown species that are distinguished externally by white marks centrally on the forewings that arise to a mark shaped like and ‘X’ or an inverted ‘V’ between the reniform and orbicular. There may be a smaller mark basal to the orbicular and also one associated with the discal spot on the hindwing. The strongest fasciation on all wings is the darker brown postmedial that, on the forewing, flexes round the reniform ... The white V or X is not seen on mine. In addition, the postmedial fasciae are quite different. In Rhesala, they are quite wavy on all wings and made up of a brown line with darker brown spots. In mine, they are smoothly curved (until the angle) and made up of two parallel lines: basad brown and distal almost white.
