Libythea laius Trimen, 1879 – Lobed Beak
Subspecies in India:
(1) Libythea laius lepitoides Moore,  – Sahyadri Lobed Beak
Until recently, lepitoides was commonly listed under Libythea lepita Moore, . 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.
