    Default Is this possibly a Charaxes aristogiton?

    The strong dark oblique line on the hind wing looks similar to that of Charaxes aristogiton. Any other markers to follow? Thanks.

    This shot taken at Sungai Congkak, Hulu Langat, with the strong oblique dark line on the hind wing. I would consider this to be Charaxes aristogiton.

    They are all C. bernardus. The dark line is strongly irregular, undulating or serrated.

    C. aristogiton have the dark line quite straight & regular. It is only found much further north.
