The weather on Samui has been terrible since New Year, c,loudy and very cold (24C), and so I had not had a full day outing until Tuesday! Fortunately, the weather now appears to be improving, but the butts are still noticeable by their absence. However, managed a few shots.

1-Herona marathus angustata (previously shown upperside)

2-Lamproptera curius curius (always a favourite here)

Some UFO for which I need help.
3) This is the largest Potanthus sp. I have seen. I have it tentatively as Potanthus serina (Large Dart), but as I have no experience of this species would welcome your comments on the poss. ID.

4) I think this is a female Jamides bochus nabonassar but the markings do not seem quite right. Also it was taken in an area where I have not come across the species before (deep forest, as opposed to forest edge where I normally find it).

5) A Nacaduba species but not sure which one.

This is very confusing!:hmmm: This morning I logged on and could see ONE photo, the Potanthus sp. Why has this started to happen only in the last week?

Anyway, to ensure that everyone can see the photos, I have lumped them all at the bottom of the post. At least, I can now see them!:grin2:
