'Celaenorrhinus maculosus ssp. ; Osada, Uémura & Uehara,1999 : 221, pl.134, fig.♀. (Xam Neua)'
'Celaenorrhinus maculosus maculosus ; Nakamura & Wakahara,2012 : 57.'


The figured specimen shown as Celaenorrhinus maculosus ssp. in Osada, Uémura & Uehara,1999 is likely to be Celaenorrhinus ratna. I tentatively treat it as this taxon. Further taxonomic study is needed.
