    Default Need ID confirmation

    Dear Dr. Seow, Please help me confirming the identity of this species.

    My suspect is Stimula swinhoei swinhoei. The butterfly is photographed in Khasi Hills, Meghalaya.

    My suspect is based on the guidance you provided in my earlier post.

    UnF with the marginal third paler; UnH nearly uniformly dark brown.

    Definitely S. swinhoei.

    There is no other species with only the FW outer zone paler.
    It also occur in P. Malaysia but has largely been confused with A. nigrita.
