    Dr Seow, some amendments I'd like to suggest:

    Post 1, no 4)
    Bothrinia chennellii celastroides
    Much larger species and distinctive.

    Post 2, no. 9)
    Monodontides musina musinoides
    Another distinctive species; note the sub-basal spot in HW space 1b.
    cheers

    You are right on both counts.


    No. 4 did not look right as Zizina otis.
    I do not have Pisuth 's book for a quick check.
    It would be quite tedious to go through genus by genus from Yutaka.

    Post 2, no. 9. I recall another genus with a basal spot in space 7 but not sure which.
    Again quite tedious to check through as Yutaka provide no image of this species.
    The basal spot in space 7 is larger in Acytolepis.

    If you already figure out the species , go ahead & post it.
    Don't wait for me to figure it out.
    I work it through methodically but skipping a step usually result in an error as here.


    TL Seow ;Cheers.
