    Nelson, can you remember where you shot them? Sometimes locations can also give us a clue to narrow down the species, even as Seow helps us ID them. For some of these Arhopalas my observation is that a number of them are very local in distribution.

    A6 Arhopala eumolphus maxwelli female
    Keys 1, 7, 8, 95, 153, 154, 155, ( key 191 leads to A corinda & the aurea group which can be visually eliminated), 179, 181, 187, 189.
    It is usually impossible to differentiate between A. eumolphus & A horsfieldi based on the underside. Thankfully this one possess 2 characters seen only in A eumolphus; i.e. forewing postdiscal spot 4 and spot 5 overlaps by less than half, and hindwing spot 6 overlaps both the cellend bar & spot 5.

    Seow, Thank you so much for assisting in IDing these brownie flyers.
    You took juz a few hours to ID them . I would have taken days if not weeks, if not months and finally give up to come to a conclusion about their ID.

    The location of the shots has been added.
