Since the commander is 'appointing' me as 'specialist' (:sweat:) for this group of skipper (see here (http://www.butterflypals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=598)), so must write something on them.

1. Potanthus omaha omaha (Lesser Dart)

2. The newly 'discovered' Taractrocera archias quinta (n/m Neo Dart ;P )

(a) Absence of apiculus (hook at the end of antenna) on Taractrocera archias quinta.
(b) In Potanthus omaha omaha, the veins crossing the yellow bands is darkened.
(c) In Potanthus omaha omaha, there is a thick dark band running thru' the centre of the upperside and underside of the forewings.

Will update more when I have more 'darts'.
