paulina was described as subspecies of Neocheritra amrita by Riley,1932. However, Kimura et al.,2014 regarded it as subspecies of anasuja by description and illustration of original description, and I agree this treatment. I have never seen any examples from this area, therefore I regard it as a good subspecies provisionally. However taxonomic status of this taxon is still unclear, Further taxonomic study is needed.
