    Key line 1, 7, 8, 9,

    10 or 23
    There is actually a faint spot at the base of space 10 directly above the central cell spot, but taking line 10 will lead to A. anthelus /anarte & is incorrect.
    As stated in the key rarely a spot in space 10 may occur in A. aedias.

    Thus line 23, 45, 46, 47, to 49 (A. aedias)

    ID. Arhopala aedias agnis.

    Congratulations and
    I noticed this species had not been seen in Singapore for many years.

    This species occur in 2 sizes, one as large as a Centaur Oakblue and the other slightly larger than A. major.

    Congrats, Cher Hern.

    Was this specimen a giant or a minnow? I have only seen this species once on Samui, back in 2008, and it was of the giant form.
