Found this very timid Arhopala today which never allowed an easy shot. It was quite small, the size of A. abseus and seems aberrant; the forewing post-discal band is completely missing.

However, the character that stood out to me is the dislocated hindwing post-discal band at vein 2, which means this is quite likely A. avathina avathina.
