Charaxinae - Addendum

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

Polyura narcaea lissainei (Tytler,1914)
Polyura narcaea lissainei ; Smiles,1984 : 199. Bangkok. (NHML)
>>> The record from Bangkok is considered to be an incorrect data.

Charaxes solon echo Butler,1867
Charaxes solon echo ; Pinratana,1996 : 95, not fig. (List up only.)
Charaxes solon echo ; Ek-Amnuay,[2007] : 476, fig.N193b,♂(Malaysia).
>>> Hitherto, there has been no reliable record from Peninsular Thailand.
Therefore I would like to delete this subspecies from the list until a reliable specimen is found.

Charaxes harmodius ssp.
Charaxes harmodius ssp. ; Inayoshi,2007 : 22, fig.7♂,8♂(Un). (Ranong: Muang Chone)
Charaxes harmodius ssp. ; Miyazaki, Saito & Saito,2007c : 39, fig.N-122♂. (Lam Dong: Dambri)
>>> These records are considered to be a misidentification of Charaxes aristogiton aristogiton.

Reeves reported the above lists, but his identification was based on Malaysian literature and all species and subspecies names were Malaysian ones. Moreover no specimens were shown in his list. It is considered most of these species and subspceis should be continental ones. However For some species, it is possible that Malaysian species and subspecies are actually distributed which may cause additional confusion. Therefore I omitted all of these records.
