Records taken from Literature

'Euthalia teuta teuta ; Moulton,1923 : 130-131. (Pulo Condore)'
Bassarona recta ssp. ; Monastyrskii,2019 : 4(2):145-146, pl.78, figs.2d♂,2e♂(Un). (S: Con Son Is.)


The record of Euthalia teuta teuta in Moulton,1923 is possible to be this species.
Based on the markings, I tentatively treat it as a subspecies of Euthalia monilis. However, they need to be reconfirmed including examination of male genitalia. Further taxonomic study is needed.
