    Very strange I can't see any pictures using my desktop computer but I can see the pics on my smartphone.

    If you see pics of male & female C. philippina in C&P4 they both have sharp narrower FWs.
    This one ? female have broad FW.
    The cat is more or less like C. philippina but more smudged.

    C. philippina have a greenish ochreous scalings on the underside.

    There is another Caltoris, C. tenuis found in the north in Thailand that have greenish scales.
    Probable C. tenuis.

    You should try to get the upperside FW shot.
    C. philippina have no FW cellspot.
    C. tenuis have two cellspots.



    TL Seow: Cheers.

    Thanks Dr Seow.

    I will try and get the upperside FW shot tomorrow before releasing the butterfly.
    Is C. Tenuis in the Singapore Checklist?

    Btw, I hope you are able to see the pictures on the desktop computer now

    Many thanks again,

    C.tenuis is not known from P. Malaysia or Singapore.

    Note any blurry upperside shot as long as the spots are visible is sufficient.

    Dear Dr Seow,

    I managed to get the upperside shot of the FW and we can now, without doubt, ID this as C. Philippina, ya?
    Here are some shots.
