    Default Another skipper from the west

    Shot this skipper in the west. At first I thought it is a Small Branded Swift, but checking the BC checklist shows a possibility of it being the Borbo cinnara (Formosan Swift). Wound appreciate greatly a comment from experts regarding the ID of this skipper.

    For your further considerations,

    From HKLS: Seems to have more white spots on hindwing/underside.


    From Taiwanese book: 4 white spots on hindwing (mirrored on both upperside & underside).

    Thanks CP for the heads-up. Look like this is another one destined for the UFO folder.
