Arhopala aurea female is right.
Short stubby tail; hair brown underside.

It looks like Caltoris with the brownish antennae.
With a single cell spot the only possible match is C. cormasa.
This worn individual doesn't quite have the usual rusty underside.

LC, your lovely photo of the female Tanaecia godartii has reminded me to check on something, I have been meaning to do this for a couple of years. This relates to my earliest days on Samui, when I identified a male of that species. I was using the photo in Ek-Amnuay's book, which was slightly misleading. For some reason, I had never seen a female.

At the same time, I have definitely got females of T. cocytus, but never seen a male!

After careful checking, I do NOT have T. godartii here, yet:thumbsdow, they are all males of T. cocytus. One off the list, but that is good in one way. One less mistake for the paper. Site to be amended!

Antonio, do you have a confirmed T. godartii on KPG?

For some reason T. godartii is the commonest Tanaecia in the Klang valley. It is seen in all the small pockets of remnant forest eg. Bukit Gasing, Kota Damansara, and the Kanching Templar Park Forest, but rather uncommon.

I do not recall seeing T. iapis except a single male deep in Templar Park long ago.
