    Default Pantoporia hordonia or sandaka?

    Encountered this female this morning. Upper and underside shots of the same individual. Is it P. hordonia or P. sandaka?

    Normally in the past I would consider this a typical female Pantoporia hordonia.
    But over the years I have not seen anyone shot a male Pantoporia hordonia.


    The last male seem to be this pic of yours.

    Compare male hordonia from P. Malaysia.

    Also female hordonia from P. Malaysia.
    The FW orange submarginal band fades off at the apex or is itself rather obscure.

    Other similar pix taken in inaturalist are all females.

    Without a single shot of a male hordonia over the years, all these have to be female sandaka.


    TL Seow: Cheers.
    PS.
    Shots of the male P. sandaka from inaturalist are many.
