    Default Another problematic Arhopala from Nan

    I would be grateful for some assistance with the ID of this Arhopala, from Doi Phu Kha, 1,000 m, n Thailand.

    This was a fairly large species, and I note the long tails, the small size of the basal spots of the hindwing, as well as the spot in UHw cell 5 not touching either of the spots in cell 4, but find nothing similar.

    Many thanks.

    The wide dislocation of the HW postdiscal band at vein 2. large HW lobe & large size marks it as a member of the cleander species subgroup of the cleander group.
    The markings are as for A. silhetensis.
