    Default Hesperiinae from Chiangmai Trip (7 Oct 0 12 Oct 2019)

    Dear Dr Seow,

    Thank you for assisting us with the IDs of the Hesperiinae, which is so challenging

    Would this be a Himilayan Swift or a Yellow Spot Swift please?

    Himalayan Swift Polytremis discreta.
    There is a current name change to a new genus Zenonoida.

    P. discreta ;HW cilia becoming whitish in the tornal (lower) part.
