    Default +2 for the Checklist

    Stimula swinhoei female

    The only Demon sized skipper with a large pale area on the underside of the forewing.
    The ID is confirmed by ; on the forewing vein 5 which arise from the middle of the cross vein at the cellend is midway between vein 6 ( arising from the upper angle of cellend) and vein 4 (arising from the lower angle ).Zoom to view.
    In the Demons(Ancistroides), vein 5 arise lower down the cross vein, and so is much nearer vein 4 than vein 6.

    Seow,

    Thank you for taking the time to go through way back in our record!

    This is rather unexpected, for this very rare skipper Stimula swinhoei to be sighted in Singapore island!

    Hopefully , the Butterfly Fairy will smile on us for a voucher specimen !


    Cheers!
