    2. Allotinus probably A. davidus . Correction; Probably Allotinus horsfieldi.
    The FW series of spots is not dislocated ;HW with spot 6 shifted in.
    This is a small species.

    Similar A. horsfieldi .Larger ; FW series of spots broken in the middle.

    The Short-branded Darkie - Allotinus davidis

    I forgot A. davidus does have a black spot although it is not supposed to be that prominent.
    The labelling on your website is confusing.

    2 is probably A. horsfieldi. There is probably a dislocation between the two triangular spots & the colour is also more beige.

    TL Seow: Cheers.

    PS. Here is the holotype of A. davidus from Singapore. Fig 6 & another 7, the paratype from south Johor.
    The black spot is not prominent.

    Your A. davidus may be another A . substrigosus.

    Dear Dr Seow & Antonio,

    Thanks a lot for the inputs. It is so difficult to ID some butterflies without the help of experts. Cheers!

    Best regards,
    David Chan
