    Just had a couple of days in the Cameron Highlands and snapped the following butts:


    Ragadia critolaus


    Lethe verma robinsoni


    Ypthima pandocus corticaria


    Melanocyma faunula faunula


    Parantica sita ethologica

    Big thanks to Les for help with IDs.

    What was known as Ragadia crisilda critolina is shown to be 2 species.
    This submontane species is now Ragadia critolaus.

    The true Ragadia crisilda critolina is smaller with the marginal white area heavily sullied, and is found from Kedawi northwards.

    Although J.N. Eliot have stated in his review(2006) the Burmese critolaus is a distinct species, I noticed that in Yutaka it is still listed as a subspecies of R. crisilda.
    There seems to be a conflict of opinion here.
