This butterfly was spotted on Tecoma capensis flower in my terrace garden.
Thank you so much Bayucca.
Welcome to Project Noah, Suman!
There are 4 species of Parnara in India and without genital dissection and/or DNA it is not possible to ID a Parnara from only a picture (at least not on a safe base). So I suggest to go with Parnara sp. as scientific name. Parnara sp. is definitely safe, based on the markings on the hindwing.
Thank you for your warm welcome. Happy that you liked my spotting.
A warm welcome to the Project Noah community! Great to see your first few spottings.
Thank you for your welcome email. I will try to provide as much information as I can while posting my new spotting in this wonderful project..
Take care. Stay safe.

This is a nice first spotting, thanks for sharing it with us. If you know the organism ID, please provide it in right fields; for the rest, please bear in mind to fill the form as much as you can. If you don’t know the organism, describe at least the place where the organism was spotted in “Habitat” paragraph; as that information can help to identify it.

Several of the Swifts are looking similar too:
Not 100 percent sure (not familiar with Indian Hesperiids), but maybe Borbo cinnara?
