    Default Confirmation of ID - Potanthus confucius

    Photographed at Mae Kamphong, n Thailand at about 1,000 metres. Probably the most notable thing in the field was the minute size of this Potanthus in relation to others in the area and that I am familiar with.
    The small size should narrow it down to Potanthus confucius or P. omaha I think, but looks like the former.

    Thanks

    Without the underside & abdominal end it is rather difficult.

    Probably P. mingo.

    P. confucius is larger & the UpF band is continuous without any darkened veins.Abdomen end yellow.

    Many thanks for the feedback. Yes, I always try to obtain both upper and under side shots, but sometime they do not cooperate......
