    Hmm... Federick's shot is another UFO. Quite different and most likely a tailless species.

    There's an article in CP's Taiwanese link. Would make some interesting reading if we knew what the article was about... Maybe our specimen here is also the Philippine subspecies instead of the Malaysian one?


    Lu CC and Hsu YF. 2002. Catopyrops ancyra almora, a lycaenid butterfly new to Taiwan: a case of biological invasion from the Philippines. BioFormosa 37:25-30.

    I have both editions. The first edition comes in two volumes whilst the 2nd edition is combined into one single book. The one in the link is the 2nd edition. The printing and colour for the 1st edition is, however much better.

    Up for loan if any of you interested.

    lucky shots. was tired after lunch, so wondering if we are looking at Nacaduba. then after a long list from the Australian website, found this Taiwanese website. And, it look pretty similar (but not 100%).

    Previously, I was comparing against Nacaduba biocellata from Australia. My gut feeling is that we might be looking at yet another invading species given the new plants introduced on the island. :P
