Taxon: Miletus [genus]

Are you sure? Inahoshi have added Miletus images! I am disappointed by too weak a lightening adjacent to the cell end on UNF. It is exactly as in M. chinensis. In all specimens of P. croton in Inayoshi's site these are all very broad and bright At the same time, in the M. chinensis page the male from Chanthaburi and the female from Trat (both areas close to you) have the same postiscal dark UNH band as here. M. mallus is shown with variable both UNH dark spots and UPH white spot.

@oleg_kosterin after further conversations with Tek Lin Seow, I now believe it is M. mallus mallus but I cannot add the ID because the species is not present. I have flagged the genus for curation.
