Chalybs janias (Cramer, 1779)  

Kaye (1904, 1921) included C. janias   as a synonym of C. romulus   , which Robbins (2004) treats as a nomen dubium (see comments under C. hassan   in main list above). All specimens examined to date have been C. hassan   , and we have not seen any specimens of C. janias   from Trinidad. However, based on its mainland distribution, it can be expected to occur.
