    Dear Dr. Seow sir

    I am posting here one Ochlodes sp. that I think to be Ochlodes subhyalina. The photo was taken in Khasi Hills, Meghalaya.

    The series of yellow spots on HW resembles Ochlodes subhyalina.

    Thank you in advance.

    2. Is it Koruthialos rubecula?? I thought this to be Koruthaialos butleri at first, but it seems Koruthaialos rubecula have a dark form that confused me. I am not familiar with its identification by palpi length.

    2. Koruthaialos rubecula cachara.
    You can seen the palpus 3rd segment sticking upright (slightly shiny) between the antennae.

    Palpi (plural) 3rd segment long & projecting upright.
