    Default Some additional Malay sp. for ID

    Dear dr. Seow, I would like to call upon your help once more for some difficult (to me at least) Malaysian species.

    The first two look like the same species:
    1. Bukit Fraser, Pahang, Malaysia, Feb. 2019

    2. Bukit Fraser, Pahang, Malaysia, Feb. 2019

    3. Bukit Fraser, Pahang, Malaysia, Feb. 2019 Borbo cinnara?

    4. Cameron highlands, Malaysia, Feb. 2019 Borbo cinnara?

    5. Penang, Malaysia, March 2019, ???

    6. Taman Negara, Malaysia, Feb. 2019, Arhopala, with many similar looking species.
    The sine-like shape of the blue marking together with the small separated second blue marking would suggest A. major or A. agesilaus?

    7. Taman Negara, Malaysia, Feb. 2019 Neptis duryodana?
