    Thanks, Dr Seow for the ID. For photo no. 4, does it have 2 scientic names - Athyma asura and Limenitis asura? Did google search on both names and they are the same speices.
    This is from Antonio's website https://thaibutterflies.com/?s=Limenitis+asura

    Limenitis was once the broad generic name used for a numer of distantly related genera. Newer classifications use Athyma because they wish to emphasise the distinctness of these two groups of taxa. So this name has now been confined to a small group of species and is used in a much narrower sense.

    Recent mitochondrial gene analysis show several species currently in Athyma belong in Limenitis.
    These include A. asura, , jina , & sulpitia (already placed by Yutaka in Limenitis)

    The following Theclinae are easy to ID so no help needed (phew!) I hope!

    Cheritra freja evansi (Common imperial)
    A moderately rare species in Singapore but seems to be quite common in Chiangmai, I encountered a couple of them each day. I prefer the subspecies frigga which is found in Singapore, with more orange shading on the forewing. Nonetheless, still a joy to see and photograph because I haven't got the chance to do so in Singapore yet.







    Hypolycaena erylus himavantus (Common Tit)
    A common species but still very attractive. A lot "whiter" than the subspecies teatus, the pristine ones have a beautiful slivery sheen, reflecting light at certain angle....I don't think the photos have done justice to its beauty!





    Remelana jangala ravata (Chocolate Royal)
    A lot darker than the subspecies travana which is found in Singapore. It has a beautiful purplish hue which I don't see in travana.

    The sighting of the Pseudotajuria donatana arooni got us all excited, highlight of the day at Phrao - Mae Pang.
