[ LAOS ]
Spindasis nipalicus rukma ; Osada, Uémura & Uehara,1999 : 218, pl.122, fig.♂(Un). (Phong Saly)
Spindasis rukma ; Nakamura & Wakahara,2012 : 53.


In Osada, Uémura & Uehara,1999, only the underside was shown. The upper surface needs to be examined, but I suspect that this could be Spindasis evansii ayuthia. Further taxonomic study is needed.
