    Default A dark brown skipper

    Encountered this dark brown skipper in the nature reserve.
    I am totally clueless about its ID.

    Dr Seow, any ID assistance would be very much appreciated.

    It is indeed.(size, dark body & cilia, & bulging palpi )

    I remembered long ago I ID'ed one of this as Idmon distanti basing it on the light area on the underside forewing.
