Gambian Butterflies and moth

Hi all,

I'm sorting out pictures from my recent Gambia trip and can't pin down a few.

Grateful for any help.

Pierid (I think)

Pansy?

Looks noctuid but absolutely no idea.

Cheers

John

2 looks like Yellow Pansy
3 reminds me of Scarce Bordered Straw. Maybe that or sibling species.

1 looks like the Flip Flop Leptosia alcesta.

Thanks both. I've looked at Scarce Bordered Straw and still can't see it myself, but the other two look spot on. Much appreciated.

Further comment on the moth invited....

Cheers
