    Default Deudorix elioti?

    Is this Deudorix elioti that I shot at TBHP?

    Looks more like its close cousin, the Cornelian (Deudorix epijarbas cinnabarus)

    Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try

    Thanks Khew. Agree that this is a closer match.
    Somehow I missed out this entry in the checklist earlier.

    Yes, very pleased with another +1.
    This particular flowering tree is very interesting with quite a number of other butts feeding on the blooming flowers. Is this the same species of tree the silver royal was found on?

    Nice catch, horace.
    Wow, flowering plants imply that we may have surprises there.

    Thanks Federick. Yes, surprises possible while flowers last.

    BTW, confirmed that the specimen is male with a glimpse of its orangy-red upperside as seen in the following pic (circle A). I am also puzzled by the reddish fluid/excretion at one of its legs (circle B). Does anyone know the likely source of this fluid (the flower or the butt)?
