Various ways to construct Possible origins for various spider-mimic wing patterns. a An ancestral wing pattern with fasciae straddling alternating veins at the costa, as seen in Sabatinca doroxena. b, c, d “Spider-mimic” wing patterns in which the vestiges of such a fasciate pattern can still be seen. e A derived wing pattern with dark spots straddling all veins at the costa, as seen in Sabatinca demissa. f, g “Spider-mimic” wing patterns in which all veins are surrounded by dark scales at the costa
