Females of these are huge and the undersides are exquisite

Dave, I'm continuously amazed at your collection. How do you locate such fabulous specimens? How many drawers do you have?

Thank You. I have been collecting for over 40 years & have obtained specimens from many sources in the U.K. & overseas during that time.
These particular ones come from Ken Thorne in Canada. I got them about twenty years ago.
Most of my collection is housed in Entomological double sided plastazote lined Store Boxes from Watkins & Doncaster. I have over 100 of those.
Here is an example containing African & Asian Kallima & related families.

Reason: Kallima, not Kamilla

Just to address Adam's edit:
The green specimens in the 5th row on the left side were formerly known as Kamilla ansorgei. In the seventh row of the same side, second from the left, is a specimen of what was formerly known as Kamilla cymodoce. Both of these species are now placed within Junonia.

That said, I expect Dave had meant Kallima.

Also, Dave, you'll probably want to swap that J. cymodoce around with the Kallimoides rumia above it (or beside it).

Oh, that is interesting. I didn't realise that there is also a genus Kamilla. Apologies if Dave actually meant Kamilla, but most of these butterflies are Kallima.

Agreed! I've only been able to acquire a single specimen (a male) of this species. It was from Chuck Ianni.

There is also the genus Mallika Collins & Larsen, 1991 which adds another permutation to the set. ;)

Indeed I did. Getting old !! Thank You & also thanks to Adam for the correction. I believe Jackson's leaf butterfly is now placed in a genus of its own. Mallika.

I have some very strange arrangements in some of my boxes. Some for purely aesthetic reasons. Sacrilege among the more scientific minded I know. Apologies to anyone offended by this.
