Apaturinae - Addendum

The following species were recorded from Indo-Chinese region in the past publications, however were deleted from the list by the reason written below.

Sephisa chandra stubbsi  Corbet, 1941
Sephisa chandra stubbsi ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 472, pl.210, fig.N187b,♂(Malaysia),♂(Un,Malaysia),♀. ("Ranong")
Sephisa chandra stubbsi ; Ek-Amnuay,2012 : 494, pl.220, fig.N371b,♂(Malaysia),♂(Un,Malaysia),♀. ("Ranong")
Sephisa chandra stubbsi ; Kimura et al.,2016 : 128. (by literature)
>>> Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded ssp.stubbsi from Ranong, However the illustrated male specimen is from Malaysia and female is considered to be ssp.chandra. Therefore its location "Ranong" is doubtful. Hitherto I have never seen any reliable specimen from P.Thailand. We would like to delete this subspecies from the list until we find a reliable specimen.
