    Default Caltoris kumara - confirmation of ID

    A skipper from Mae Hong Son, forest at 800 metres. Unfortunately no underwing shot, but the lack of spots in the hindwing and the lack of cell spots in the forewing does, I think, narrow this down to a Caltoris sp. From literature and the web, the most likely fit is Caltoris kumara. Would that be correct?
    Many thanks.

    Two species with the FW cell without spots.

    Caltoris kumara have the FW spot 2 semi-triangular & spot 3 narrow.

    Caltoris malaya ;FW spot 2 quadrate (squarish) & spot 3 similar.

    So this looks closer to Caltoris kumara.


    TL Seow: Cheers.
