    Default Isma from Krung Ching Waterfall-TH

    Usually in the long trail going to this beautiful waterfall is common what I think is Isma bononia bononia,



    The Lesser Long-spot Flitter - Isma bononia bononia






    but this one looks a bit different (I.umbrosa?). Usually now for this kind of butterflies I try to capture to have a certain identification, but this one managed to escape



    Isma sp.





    For your information, this is instead is




    The Ciliate Long-horned Flitter - Isma iapis iapis



    and this is




    The Bicolour Long-horned Flitter - Isma protoclea obscura



    same location, managed to analyze the specimens.

    The Isma are tough to IDed by the underside alone.

    Your 2nd image is probably I. damocles female.

    The antennal white spot in I. umbrosa is a dot.
