The Common Maplet, Chersonesia risa risa (Doubleday)

Has all the habits of Chersonesia and are found in the same localities as such but mostly confined to lower mid-elevations. Both males and females visit flowers of the Chromolaena and Lantana but males are also found puddling on seepages and damp forest floor. The species can easily be set apart from others by its rather straight FW termen and the markings are aligned to it, giving the FW an acute appearance.

Lethe verma robinsoni (Pendlebury)

Endemic to the forested areas of Tanah Rata of the Camerons Highlands in the vicinities of the Parit Falls (formerly Robinson Falls) hence its name, but also found in Gunung Jasar. Smaller than most species of Lethe and has a rather quadrate FW which instantly differentiate it from L. confusa.
