    Default Maliau Basin Conservation Area [Request some ID]

    Hi Guys,

    I would like to share my findings from my 2 days camping trip recently in Maliau Basin. The trip was my 3rd short trip, not too many butterfly or even moths around, probably the seasons start to have light showers every evening.. or just too many birds around that place.

    Nevertheless some butterflies I managed to photograph and some need ID help from the experts here.

    1. Polyura jalysus triphonus

    2. Polyura athamas faliscus

    3. Lamproptera curius [White Dragontail]

    4. Charaxes solon echo [Black Rajah]

    5. Polyura delphis delphinion [Jewelled Nawab]

    6. Vindula dejone dajakorum

    Thanks Alot Aaron...

    I am still very much learning and frequently got confused. Also I am lack of Borneo references, still looking for Otsuka's book if it is available.

    Many Thanks again.

    8. Curetis sperthis male. Black speckles; FW band parallel to margin.

    9. C. santana or felderi. black speckles; FW band oblique;HW vaque but suggest C. santana.
    C. felderi
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...riMUpUnAc1.jpg

    10 female C. sperthis.

    11. Very hard to separate M. patiana & anaputa.

    M. anapita paler & yellower; Upperside FW eyespot clearly yellow-ringed.
    Underside FW extra lower spot may be significant.
    http://www.samuibutterflies.com/expe...alesisanapita/

    M. patiana; deeper orange brown Upperside eyespot smudged into black border.
    http://www.samuibutterflies.com/expe...alesispatiana/

    The two are much mixed-up on the web.
    Even Yutaka's M. anapita appeared to be M. patiana.
    http://yutaka.it-n.jp/sat/40600001.html

    13. Probably a broad banded H. taminatus.

    H. taminatus Singapore.
    http://www.butterflycircle.com/check...l_Adult_06.jpg
    H. vitta
    http://m6.i.pbase.com/g1/25/686825/2...6.qFwmxw9V.jpg
    H. proxissima.
    http://wingscales.com/content/record/766-1-4861e.jpg

    A correction for 18.
    Ionolyce helicon.
    FW shape is distorted.
    FW main band serially broken; submarginal spots pointed; HW angular.

    Thank for the corections, Dr Seow. I see the FW band on the Ionolyce now. Should've noticed it earlier!

    21 & 22.
    Both are members of the muta subgroup.
    21. makings narrow probably A. metamuta.
    22. Green metalmark large. Unknown.

    Examples of muta subgroup
    A. avathina & muta.

    23. Borbo cinnara.

    24.Cephrenes acalle female. vert variable
    http://www.ifoundbutterflies.org/med...bea7dc26-1.jpg

    25. Psolos fuligo.

    25. Likely Bornean form of Koruthailos sindu.
    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--KYgJZHHZV...0/DSC_0205.JPG

    26. Likely Nacaduba subperusia. Either N. subperusia or hermus.

    Does match the usual N. hermus from India.

    The 2nd Arhopala is very likely A. baluensis.

    The green tornal marking is large and its topmost portion in space 3 is well-separated from the rest of the green scales below it by a patch of brown scales. This character seems to only be present in baluensis and alica (both endemic to Borneo), the other spp in Borneo have these green scales in space 3 either weakly developed or absent. Ventral markings in alica are very indistinct so this must be baluensis.

    Probably right, but pretty hard to be certain.
