    Default Ranong and environs, South Thailand, November 2016

    A short trip to Ranong, port and border Town along the Andaman coast and famous butterfly destination. Our main target was the uncommon and elusive Atrophaneura sycorax, seen just few days before. Saw as few but managed just a poor shot of a great female.


    The Whitehead Batwing - Atrophaneura sycorax egertoni


    Other species:


    The Southern Nawab - Polyura hebe chersonesus



    The Red Imperial - Suasa lisides lisides



    The Dot-dash Sergeant - Athyma kanwa kanwa
    - a distorted shot



    The Straight Plum Judy - Abisara kausambi kausambi
    CORRECTION


    The Malayan Wanderer ♀ - Pareronia valeria lutescens



    Unidentified Hesperiinae, no spots or hyaline, almost same size of a Psolos fuligo
    (Hyarotis iadera? Ge geta?)

    Koruthaialos butleri is so similar to no. 7 that it seem impossible to tell.

    However the palpi 3rd segment is visible as a conical knob in K. butleri whereas it is practically invisible in Q. monteithi.

    Q. monteithi ,Singapore where K. butleri is absent.
