Dodona deodata Hewitson, 1876 – Broad-banded Punch
Subspecies in India:
No subspecies are listed under this species. It was historically (Evans 1932) treated as a subspecies of Dodona henrichi – White Punch, a Chinese species, but deodata is now widely considered to be specifically distinct. For several decades, Dodona longicaudata – Long-tailed Punch, was treated as a subspecies of deodata but Callaghan (2009) showed deodata and longicaudata to be specifically distinct.
