Notes

Eliot,1990 regarded vietnamica as a synonym of ssp.labuana from Labuan Is., Borneo. However male of ssp.labuana has more wider red area on the UpF and the ground color on the underside is more darker. Afterwards, Kimura et al.,2014 treated it as an independent subspecies. The width of black apical area is rather variable but is narrower than ssp.jopa.
