    Default ID Help Dr Seow

    This skipper was shot in 2015 and the markings look like some of the other swifts that I can't nail it down. Please help Dr Seow!

    It is another female Pelopidas agna.
    The underside colouration of P. agna is quite uniformly brown .
    Three males & two females.

    In P. mathias the colour is uneven with paler whitish (grey actually) shadings especially in the marginal areas of both wings.
    Two males & two females.

    The two species are probably about equally common throughout their range.

    TL Seow: Cheers.
