    Very difficult to ID skippers from Borneo.
    Regional difference makes it different in look, & there are also endemic species.

    1 & 5 are the same species.
    The continuous forewing band suggest Potanthus confucius.

    2 & 3 are the same species Taractrocera ardonia.

    4. is an Isma species.


    TL Seow: Cheers.

    Post 5.

    3.Probably correct as P. hordonia.
    P. sandaka is similar on the underside.


    4. Female Cepora iudith.
    Compare the male from Borneo.

    5. Nacaduba angusta.

    6. Should be Prosotas pia.
    The forewing Postdiscal band is serially broken.
    FW submarginal spots obsolete.
