    Default Butterflies shot in Bali

    Dear Dr Seow,

    Appreciate if you could help ID these shot in Bali:

    1. Could this be a Common Cerulean (Jamides celeno?

    2. Could this be a Malay Viscount (Tanaecia pelea)? There are white markings on the hindwings from the T. pelea pelea found in Singapore.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Best regards,

    1 is a dry swason form of J. celeno.

    2. TThe Indonesian island has totally different forms of Tanaecia.

    I am not sure about this but I think it is the Tanaecia palguna.

    T. palguna from Bali.

    Dear Dr Seow,

    Thanks for the assistance. Yes, the 2nd butterfly does look like the T. palguna balina (please see link below):
