    #6 is probably an Anthene sp.?

    Could #7 be the endemic Arhopala bella? Markings seems too contrasty for eumolphus

    You are probably right about # 6.The strongly bent FW postdiscal band suggest A. lycaenina.

    #7 is Arhopala eumolphus.;HW postdiscal spot 5 & cellend bar are very close in bella but widely separated in eumolphus. Also larger green metalmark in eumolphus.

    #8 is unknown Arhopala. Green metalmark does not match A. antimuta. HW is angular but no match seen; markings mostly lost.


    #5. The HW orange crown is delineated with a dark line suggesting Rapala dieneces although the FW band/line is curved.
