    Default Three ID challanges from nw Thailand

    On a return trip to Omkoi, nw Thailand this week we encountered a number of challenging identifications. Would appreciate some comments on the three species below. With many thanks.

    Image 1. I have nothing remotely resembling this in my collection. An aberrant form of Catochrysops strabo?

    Image 2a. Thoressa hyrie or Thoressa fusca? I favour the former.

    Image 2b. Same individual as 1a, but without flash.

    Image 3. I have never seen any lycanid with this pale area of the forewing. An aberrant form of something common? Catochrysops strabo?
    Though lacks a tail. Only the one shot, so no shot from below.
    Probably unidentifiable, but interested to know if this wing pattern is a common occurance.
