[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I remember I posted a closeup of this species showing the head part. Now I'd like to post a shot of the whole butterfly which was captured this morning. But very often people will confuse the Redbase Jezebel with the Redbreast Jezebel because they resemble so much. After some study, I started to see the difference.
The differences are as follows : Upper, fore wing : the white spot at apex of cell replaced by an upper and a lower grey scaled spot that crosses the discocellulars, which are black ; the postdiscal series of hastate spots converted into broad greyish diffuse streaks of which the streak in interspace 3 is shifted more inward than the others. In the rf the broad subbasal greyish streaks in interspaces 1 and 2 and in the cell are longer than in the female. Hind wing black ; basal area to middle of cell deep vermilion, traversed by the black veins ; interspaces la. 1 and posterior medial portion of 2 powdered thickly with greyish-white scales in the male; remainder of interspace 2 bright yellow ; interspaces 3 to 8 with broad diffuse grey streaks that do not reach the termen, the streaks in interspace 5 extend into apex of cell ; in female similar, but inter- spaces 2 to 5 with still broader yellow streaks, of which those in interspaces 4 and 5 cross over the discocellulars into the apex of the cell. Underside : similar to the upperside, the grey markings paler, almost white ; hind wing in both sexes with the basal vermilion patch extended to the base of the dorsal margin : humeral angle at base of wing with an ochraceous spot ; apex of cell and broad streaks in interspaces 1 to 8 yellow fading to yellowish-white anteriorly : the veins narrowly black, which colour broadens triangularly at their apices and so forms anteriorly a more or less irregular terminal black margin. Antennae, head, thorax and abdomen as in D. pasithoe.
