    Here's another one which i'm tempted to say is milleri as well but something about the post-discal band on the hindwing doesn't seem quite right. There's a hint of blue showing through the forewing costal margin

    The dorsal is a matt blue, even when it was flying so this cannot be due to the angle. Thoughts?

    Agreed the colour is quite matt (non-reflective)blue, so this s A. milleri.

    The underside does not seem special .
    Still I am saving this up for reference.

    If you are talking of the green scales & black spots, they are marginal marks.
    Still all four looks to be variants of A. sublustris.

    Found this one recently which i think might be Arhopala aroa aroa; spot 6 is much narrower at the bottom. However, i'm not sure if the post-discals and submarginals are far apart enough for it to definitively be aroa so i'll just leave this as "cf. aroa"

    The veins have this weird greenish tinge, especially on the forewing and i couldn't get rid of it no matter how i edited it

    Post 16.
    The submarginal & postdiscal spots on the HW are too close.

    This below is probably A. aroa as the HW submarginal & postdiscal spots are far apart.
