    Default Some Butterfly Sighting Records in 2012

    Shot at PRP last Saturday (29 Jan)

    Quite a few King Crows (Euploea phaenareta castelnaui) feeding on one particular flowering Syzygium tree

    The 3rd shot puzzles me, but I think it is more likely to be King crow ?

    Some shots taken in the past two weeks.
    1. Anthene emolus goberus (Ciliate Blue)
    2. Caleta elna elvira (Elbowed Pierrot) & Ionolyce helicon merguiana (Pointed Line Blue) ?
    3. Tagiades calligana (The Malayan Snowflat) - No, it should be Tagiades gana gana (Large Snow Flat)
    4. Jamides celeno aelianus (Common Caerulean)
    5. Symbrenthia but which species ? - pity that I had only one shot
    6. Miletus biggsii biggsii (Biggs's Brownie)
    7. Hypolimnas anomala anomala (Malayan Eggfly)

    Thumbs up

    Congrates Federick , for adding Symbrenthia to the Singapore Checklist!

    It has not been recorded here before (C&P4).



    Looks like Symbrenthia hippoculus selangorana ( The Common Jester )

    Great Job Federick

    Do you have an upper of that 'J. celeno ? It looks a bit odd.

    That Tagiades calligana looks closer to Tagiades gana featured in the photo checklist.
