    Correction

    No.2 Most likely Borbo cinnara.
    There are spots on the HW, clearer in this pic.
    https://inaturalist-open-data.s3.ama...2029/large.jpg

    This plus the white face & thicker antennal clubs suggest B. cinnara

    Examples.

    Hi Doctor Seow,

    Another few skippers and a brownwing to ask!

    1-caltorus 1.1.jpgcaltorus 1.2.jpg
    The antenna has a white region, so i suppose caltoris cormasa?

    2-dart1.1.jpg
    i only have one shot. Since the forewing dark regions arent very dark, would this be a potanthus species?

    3-lesser dart 1.1.jpglesser dart 1.3.jpg
    Potanthus omaha?

    4-pelopidus 1.1.jpgpelopidus 1.3.jpg
    P. agna?

    5-skip 1.jpgskip 2.jpg
    P. omaha?

    6-miletues 1.1.jpgmiletues 1.3.jpg
    which brown wing is this? i cant tell them apart

    Thanks in regards

    Zick

    Dear Doctor Seow,

    Here are some new skipper

    1 - BIGGUY1.1.jpgBIGGUY1.2.jpgBIGGUY1.3.jpg
    This skipper is the size of a caltoris, big as a biden pilosa. FW vein looks lightly darken with abdominal black band. Is it a P.serina?

    2 - brownguy1.1.jpgbrownguy1.2.jpg
    This caltoris/boaris species is not brownish red, and somewhat greyish brown. Not so confident but i suspect is a caltoris species

    3 - smallguy1.1.jpgsmallguy1.2.jpg
    FW spots distinctly yellow, Polytremis lubricans?

    4 - tinguy1.1.jpgtinyguy1.2.jpg
    Potanthus omaha? The forewing is lightly darken at submarginal area and veins are somewhat dark

    Regards
    Zick

    Hi Doctor Seow,

    Can i clarify what do you mean by ground colour? Is it refering to a specific part of the skipper, or just the colouring of the skipper in general?

    Thank you!

    The ground colour is the background colour as against the colour of any markings on it.

    For examples.
    The ground colour is blue-black with parallel stripes of ashy blue on both wings.
    https://live.staticflickr.com/4670/3...4d2f7789_b.jpg

    The ground colour is heavily dark-shaded.
    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-f3wB2A2ujB...0/_MG_1531.jpg

    The orange HW band contrast strongly with the ground colour.
    http://www.butterflycircle.com/check..._female_01.jpg

    The HW band barely contrast with the ground colour.
