    Default Skipper ID please

    Hi Dr Seow,

    Please help ID this skipper. It was shot in Upper Seletar Reservoir last year. I hope the two other shots would help with the ID. I do apologise they are blurry though.

    From the abdominal end it is a female.
    The antennal club has a pale area which is normally invisible in Baoris.
    Also Baoris female has a more elongate body; a pale mark at HW cellend; more curved FW.
    Female B. oceia.

    It should be correct as a female C. bromus though there is no HW spot.

    1 & 2 Permara pugnans. Very worn.
    The finely speckled ground pattern can still be seen.
    The long thin tapering black antenna is a helpful hint.

    3. Athyma kanwa.
    The triangular cellend spot with its lower margin in line with the thin cellular bar is characteristic.
