    I understnad these skippers are a tricky lot to identify, especially if we don't have enough shots from various angles.

    Thanks for everything Dr. Seow.

    Hellow Dr Seow

    Could this be Borbo cinnara?

    These two are very difficult to separate in field shots.
    Part of the blame is that in the net the IDs are all mixed up so that it is hard to gauge which is correct.

    These images are all from Singapore where only Borbo cinnara occur.

    These images can reasonably said to be correct for Pseudoborbo bevani.

    The main difference are ,B. cinara UnH spots sharply defined; antennal shaft mostly dark; UpF spots 2 & 3 irregular.
    P. bevani ;UnH spotspoorly defined ,blurry; antennal shaft paler, often with a pale area behind the club; UpF spots smaller & rounded.


    Your shot with sharply defined HW spots & dark antennae indicate it is a female Borbo cinnara.

    Thank you so much Dr. Seow.

    Based on your earlier coaching, I made an informed guess this time.

    Default Caltoris Kumara?

    Could this be Caltoris Kumara Dr Seow? Both photos of the same individual. Shot in our garden, Mangalore, Coastal Area of Karnataka State, India September 2018

    Wings are broad, only two supapical spots in FW, Spot 2,3,4 almost equidistant. Apparently no spot on UNH

    Yes this looks like Caltoris kumara.
    Larger size FW- 20mm rounder wings. Antennal club slimmer vs Borbo & Parnara.
    Underside HW with an ochreous overlay (appear as a speckling).
    Male C. kumara with 2 subapical spots.

    Baoris have similar antennae but UnH without ochreous overlay.
    B. chapmani subapical 1 or none. darker.
