Notes
Monastyrskii,2019 regarded all taxon of nashona in Vietnam as ssp.aagaardi, however figured specimens in pl.49, figs.2a,♂,2b,♂(Un) from N.Vietnam are Neptis cartica. We consider ssp.tamamitsui and ssp.kishii are valid subspecies.
A male specimen in Monastyrskii,2019, fig.2c from Huong Thuy seems slightly approach to ssp.kishii.
