I have already posted a link to my full checklist (http://www.rainbowlodgecambodia.com/butterfliesatrainbowlodge.htm) but I thought I would make it easier for people by actually posting some pictures. For now, I am only including those that do not appear in the main checklist. Some of the pictures are poor but I have included them, anyway. All the pictures are small but I have bigger versions of most, if anyone wants one.

Hi Gee,

I think you have your two Lethe photos wrong. I believe you have male and female of your local subspecies of Lethe mekara.

Hi Les,

I will have to take your word for it. I can find very few images of Lethe mekara on the web. Stupid question: which is which?

Thanks for all your help!

The female has the uneven white bar on the forewing.
