Libythea laius Trimen, 1879 – Lobed Beak

Subspecies in India:

(1) Libythea laius lepitoides Moore, [1903] – Sahyadri Lobed Beak

Until recently, lepitoides was commonly listed under Libythea lepita Moore, [1858]. Kawahara (2013) moved it under Libythea laius based on the tornal lobe on the hindwing that is present in laius and lepitoides but absent in lepita.
