    1. Pelopidas mathias female.
    Typical with grey & dark shadings.


    2. Probably Caltoris cormasa male.
    Baoris & Caltoris are about the same size.
    The appearance is too reddish.
    A top view may not show the pale area properly on the antenna.
    C. cormasa.

    Hi Doctor Seow,

    I once again have a couple of skipper to ask for ID
    1 - Attachment 27739
    Is this a lesser dart? Pothantus Omaha

    2 - Attachment 27740
    Detached dart?

    3-Attachment 27741
    Contigious swift?

    4 - Attachment 27742
    I suppose this is small branded swift, pelopidus mathias?

    -This skipper is very big in size, about one and a half section of a thumb
    5-Attachment 27743
    I thought this is a conjoined swift but i am not sure

    6 - Attachment 27744
    Also not sure about this fella

    Appreciate all the help i can get!

    Regards
    Zick
