    Default Arhopala amphimuta

    I have two old pictures both ID as Arhopala amphimuta and both from Peninsular Thailand. I see though few differences:


    The Broad Yellow Oakblue
    Khao Sok National Park Suratthani


    The Broad Yellow Oakblue
    Khao Luang National Park Nakhon Si Thammarat

    I could be wrong, but the 2nd one is likely A. agesilaus. Unfortunately i don't have my references at hand

    1. Arhopala antimuta.
    The HW spot 7 is on top of spot 6, tornal green scales, tailless.

    2. Likely Arhopala hypomuta.
    HW spot 5, 6, 7, in echelon, ie each one is set further in than the one below.
    FW spot 4 dislocated out, Tailless.
    A. hypomuta usually have a spot at the base of HW space 6 , but not always.

    Funny that i did consider hypomuta but ruled that out because i couldn't see the spot in space 6
