Potanthus spp. – Dart spp.

Subspecies in India:

There are 19 species of Potanthus in India. Their species-level identification is based largely on structures of the male genitalia. Hence, they cannot be identified easily based on external traits such as wing patterns. The images below thus represent the genus on the whole. We will create pages for individual species as we photograph in nature, collect and dissect specimens with confirmed species assignments, or with museum specimens.
