    Default Another Dart

    Maybe it's just me being a newbie, but I cannot ID this Dart, it looks different from any of the Hesperiidae I know.


    A Dart

    Any input?

    It is impossible to ID a Dart from just the underside of the forewing. At the very least, the underside of the hindwing is needed.

    I have just realised that there are some distinctive features here. The outside margins of the three subapical spots and both margins of the two spots in space 4 & 5 are marked with black spots.

    It has to be Potanthus ganda.

    They really look different and are very small. Have it already striped from my to-shoot- list but those darts are also difficult to ID for me, so glad with this forum! Beautiful capture!
