Female Hasora badra resting on the underside of a leaf (Hanoi, April 2015)
In both sexes, HW with a white spot at end-cell and a long subtornal white spot
FW of female with yellowish spots in cell, in spaces 2 and 3, and small subapical spots in spaces 6-8 (FW of male unspotted)

Photos captured with a 400mm lens during a birding stroll (no macro lens in the bag...). I had to step back 4-5 meters, which explain the low image quality...
