    Default ID needed for another skipper

    Dear Dr Seow, what's the id of this skipper. I have 3 different shots for verification. Thanks!
    My guess : White Tipped Skipper (Erionota hiraca apicalis)

    Yes it is E. hiraca.

    The name is now currently back to E. acroleuca apicalis, as it is shown acroleuca has the priority over the name hiraca.

    The HW patch in E acroleucais irregular ,with the upper half narrower.
    In addition the male is the only Erionota species in which the upper part of the antennal club is wholly white.

    TL Seow: Cheers.
