    Was the last one found in Singapore?! It's Arhopala agrata which is very rare

    Diagnostic features: No costal spots on the forewing and hindwing spots 6 and 7 very broad and rectangular. What's great is that your shot also shows the dull blue dorsal characteristic of this species.

    Whoops, sorry, Dr Seow is right. Got a little carried away with the spots and forgot to look at the tornal markings and tails
