    Thank you so much for going into detail, sir. I'm still stuck with Post 65. #1 Aeromachus pygmaeus though and some of such individuals. The FW cilia isn't checkered but the antennae is long and gradual. In that particular pic, the antennae isn't well focused, my bad. Here's a more proper one of the same individual. I agree with you on Aeromachus dubious impha, and since both were flying around together and were taken on same date, I think #1 Aeromachus pygmaeus is also Aeromachus dubious impha. I have some specimens avaialbe but sadly I cannot dissect because I don't have the miscroscope. I'll let you know what comes out when I dissect it one day. Thank you for everything again.

    65. #1. Focused antenna

    Concur with you that Post 65 #1 is A. dubius impha.
    The antennal club is definitely elongate.

    There is very little difference between A. jhora & dubius impha.

    What the description meant is in A. jhora the antennal club is longer, more gradual, becoming thickest, than narrowing forward before the apiculus is joined.
    AS seen here.

    In A. dubius impha, the antennal club at its thickest is joined by the apiculus, thus the club is shorter with a more abrupt appearance.

    Wow, thank you sir! That really simplifies it. And A. pygmaeus will always have antenna without apiculus, right? At all instances?

    Essentially so.
    The description for A. pygmaeus read.
    Antenna with the tip blunt, the club straight without a well-defined apiculus.The antenna is short, less than 1/2 the length of the costa.
    Also A. pygmaeus is very small FW < 10mm . A set specimen is half the size of A. jhora.


    The great difficulty is between A. jhora & dubius.
    The club in jhora is more cylindrical & that in dubius more bulbous (bulging) but the difference appear slight.
    eg

    https://www.ifoundbutterflies.org/me...unte_aa892.jpg

    The UnH in A. dubius is not constant.
    SOme example have reduced HW spots & resembles ssp dubius.
    eg. ssp impha from Thailand marked as in ssp dubius.

    Others not so.

    If you have specimens you could check on the antennal features.

    Post 75.

    Very likely to be Rapala manea male.

    Very worn Blue flash on lower FW, vaguely on HW.

    UnH postdiscal band crooked, eliminating straight band species eg R. nissa, rectivitta, rosacea/melida.
    Tornal black spot reduced as in dsf.

    R. varuna have broad bands.
    R. scintilla is blueshot only on HW.

    They are both T. ohara jix.


    T. ohara jix.
    FW with male brand very narrow, straight & usually close to the outer border of the black space.
    UnH band with the inner margin straight or mostly so.

    T. bambusae bambusae.
    FW male brand broader & placed in the middle of the black space.

    Many thanks, sir. Pseudocoladenia fatih and fatua always confuse me, some individuals are so intermediate. Would this be fatua?
