    Default Arhopala amphimuta group ID help

    Hi can I check if this species is Arhopala amphimuta based on the dentate vein 2 at hindwing?

    If not please advise which of the other tailless Arhopala it is.

    Thank you!

    A. major is common in Singapore, while A. amphimuta is quite rare.
