Taken at Taman Botani Negara, Shah Alam today. Is it a badly worn out Pyroneura latoia? Looks in a bad shape but the hyaline spots on the forewing seems clear enough.

Another one which looks darker than what I normally encounter. Still a Pyroneura latoia?

2 is typical female Pyroneura latoia.

1. is probably male P. latoia.
There seem to be an abberation as the underside HW marking is that of the upperside.
eg upperside of P. niasana.

TL Seow: Cheers.
