    One more for our young Jonathan. He was really persistence in chasing the skittish Peacock Pansy.

    It is Borbo cinnara, the Formosan Swift.
    This one is more typical, greenish hair & greenish tinge on the hindwing plus the usual 3 big spots in space 2 ,3, & 6.


    POst 16.
    The Bush brown is highly unusual. The pattern is that of M. perseoides, but without both the forewing cell striae & the toothmark at vein 1b of the hindwing dark line, it is probably a form, perhaps semi dry season type of M. visala.
