    1 Probably A. jhora. Correction Have to be A. jhora. Antennal club too gradual & narrow to be A. pygmaeus. Also FW cilia chequered.
    2, 3, & 4 are A. jhora.


    A. pygmaeus.
    Labial palp ( palpi 2nd segment)= face, whitish.
    Antennal club, end rounded without a defined apiculus (tip). Antenna very short.
    FW cilia uniformly dark.

    Thank you, sir. There are some Aeromachus with checkered cilia and long antennal club while there are some consistently without checkered cilia also with somewhat long or gradual antennae. The ones without checkered cilia have rather washed out HW spots.

    P.S.: I also saw those uncheckered cilia individuals with gradual antennae mating.

    The difference between A. dubius & jhora as given in the key of BMP (butterflies of the Malay Peninsula.)

    Antennal apiculus beginning beyond the thickest part of the club, & usually at right angle to the club.............................................. A. jhora.

    Antennal apiculus beginning at the thickest part of the club & not at right angle to the club. Wings more rounded....................................A. dubius.


    It is impossible to judge the position of the apiculus except in a top down view in a set specimen.

    Note front antenna with the apiculus (tip) bent out.
