Comparison of the wing pattern of Sabatinca doroxena with the nymphalid groundplan. a The observed wing pattern of Sabatinca doroxena. b The wing pattern of Sabatinca doroxena plotted onto a typical wing venation groundplan for Nymphalidae, preserving the relationship between venation and pattern outlined by the “wing-margin” model. c The nymphalid groundplan [26, 46], with the discal spot/Discalis 1 (DS/D1) and the distal band of the central symmetry system (dBC) labeled and indicated with red asterisks; these two features of the nymphalid groundplan have no counterpart in the wing pattern of Sabatinca doroxena
