    Captured this Arhopala spp during yesterday's outing. Maybe Seow or others can help to ID it?

    It is either A. amphimuta or major.

    I am inclined to think it is A. major for the following reasons, but could be wrong.

    The postdiscal spot in space 1b is usually a V with both arms roughly of equal length in amphimuta.
    In major it is a L or J with one arm shorter.
    A. major appeared to be much the commoner of the 2 spp.

    This appears to be a 'common' ab, even I managed to photograph one (badly as usual) on my only visit to Singapore back in 2008.
